The city, dominated by the terrific Edinburgh castle, houses one of the best preserved historical centres in Europe.
Among volcanic hills on which the Scottish city dwells, it is possible to admire the contrasts between the Old town, the Medieval part, and the New town, the Georgian part of the city.
The castle, as it appears today, is the result of overlappings and enlargements occurred in different historical periods. The most ancient part (1100) is St. Margaret’s Chapel. It is followed by the Great Hall, commissioned by James IV (1510), while the half Moon Battery (end of 1500) is owed to Regent Morton. Finally, the Scottish National War Memorial dates back to the end of World War II.
The halls containing the Scottish Crown jewellery are unmissable.
Remarkable is the contrast between the Old town, with steep, winding little streets and tall houses, and the New town, rich in airy squares and elegant Georgian palaces.
In the Old town, head for the Gothic Saint Giles dated 1120, or participate in an underground Edinburgh tour for a trip back in time.
