Edinburgh — A highlight of any tour through Europe, Edinburgh (pronounced Edin-burra) is virtually two cities in one, with lively Princes Street serving as the dividing line between medieval Old Town and 18th-century New Town. The sum of these two parts is Britain’s second-most-visited urban center, where travelers come to explore majestic Edinburgh Castle, world-class museums, lush green spaces, and a roster of summertime music and arts festivals. Add in a growing selection of innovative restaurants and cutting-edge hotels, and our Edinburgh Travel Guide is sure to show you just why Scotland’s capital city is a place you will want to return to again and again.
