salvalasilvia The Royal Mile is one of the most colourful streets of Edinburgh and throughout the years thanks to events, buskers, festival and the preservation of its historic buildings, it’s still a lovely place to visit and walk, for both locals and tourists.There are many things to see, Saint Giles, John Knox house, and of course Edinburgh’s Castle and the Royal palace of Holyrood, from which the street got its name. A mile, a royal mile, connecting the castle and the palace.If you have the time, enjoy (and finance) one of local buskers, great entertainment! And go whenever there’s a market/fair, you’ll find something nice and unexpected to bring home from your trip.
GLS***59Looks an interesting but slightly innocuous monument. But the walk up is well worth it. Atmospheric (claustrophobic) steep spiral steps with 4 levels to get a better and better view of Edinburgh from.
salvalasilvia The Museum is free and always host great exhibitions, some might cost (a very small price), so it’s better to check online and if possible reserve a ticket but you can also buy them on the spot.The Museum is huge and gorgeous, perfect to spend a rainy day and it offers you a world of discovery all under one roof. So you can entertain anyone as there are many trails you can follow: art, science and technology, the natural world, design & fashion, Scottish history and archeology.It’s truly a gem.
