Edinburgh, Scotland – Vacation Packages
Edinburgh, Scotland. A city of ages, an epicenter of art and culture. Nestled on the coast of the Firth of Forth, near the North Sea in Scotland’s Lothian region, the Athens of the North beckons year round as tourists and travelers step out for festivals, theatre, music and art, and step back inside for the warmth of the pub, a pint, a good Scotch whisky.
Edinburgh’s urban and cosmopolitan brain are balanced by the passion and hospitality of the Scottish heart. The Old and New Towns mix time. In the Georgian New Town there are the cosmopolitan stores of Princes Street, one of the world’s finest shopping stretches, and the cobbled streets and “closes” of the medieval Old Town transport you through the centuries. Over 700 pubs can fill your glass with the finest single malt, and fine restaurants can satisfy your urge for haggis or cuisines the world over. Above it all stand the crags of Arthur’s Seat, and the volcanic rock on which Edinburgh Castle has guarded the city for over 1,000 years.
One week or two, in Edinburgh you will find plenty to do with your time and even more to do on your next trip to the Athens of the North.
