Edinburgh is the second largest city in Scotland after Glasgow. Its origins are remote and was already inhabited in the arrival of the Romans.

Public transport leaves the area of domestic flights.
We can also rent a car, if we intend to take a long vacation in the area and visit other sites of interest around Edinburgh. From the airport the A8 motorway leads directly into town. We can also get to Edinburgh by sea as this beautiful city is located on the shores of the Atlantic, on the Firth of Forth and Leith port connects to the mainland by ferry lines, ie, that it is possible to embark on our car.

Edinburgh has an impressive architectural heritage and is very easy to explore on foot. Beginning with the medieval heart of the city, the Old Town or "Old Town". Its narrow streets and buildings that are located along the Royal Mil linking the castle to Holyrood Palace, residence of the Queen, are worthy of being known and appreciated. Overlooking Edinburgh, between the citadel and the Acropolis, Edinburgh Castle is visible from anywhere.
Silent Witness the history of the city, guests met the likes of Mary Stuart and Cromwell.

Most of the buildings of the old town dating from the sixteenth century as the home of John Knox, but the Cathedral of Edinburgh, St. Giles Church, also called the High Kirk of St. Giles, dating from the fifteenth century.
The district of Grassmarket is an absolutely unmissable for its atmosphere that transports us, particularly at sunset.

By contrast the new district or New Town, is an example of Georgian town planning, after the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, with surprising harmony. This neighborhood, worthy example of eighteenth century architecture is balanced, classic to perfection to be missed by Charlotte Square and surrounding streets and get carried away sweetly.
