The Scottish capital has always been a prosperous place, vibrant and cosmopolitan without compromising its traditional Scottish heritage of kilts, bagpipes, folk music and whisky. It is divided into two distinct parts, the Old Town and New Town, which are both listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites. While the Old Town is dominated by its massive, medieval castle, the New Town is the product of Georgian planning and design.

MARCO POLO Edinburgh takes you on a journey through time. The practical pocket-sized guide presents a small capital at the edge of Europe, but one that can easily compete with much larger destinations. Take a stroll through this city of international festivals, churches and cemeteries, monuments and museums, creepy stories and strange happenings.

The Insider Tips reveal where you can drink beer made of seaweed, where Edinburgh’s closest beach resort is situated and why the station clock is always two minutes ahead. The ‘Best Of’ pages show you things you can find only in Edinburgh, recommend places to go for free, things to do on a rainy day and how best to relax and unwind.

Find out What’s Hot in Edinburgh – whether art cafés, vintage second-hand shops or places to watch football in 3D. The City Walks chapter leads you through the city’s literary past as well as to the oldest pub in Scotland – dating from 1360. Finally, the Dos & Don’ts point out some of the things you need to be aware of and watch out for when visiting the city.

MARCO POLO Edinburgh provides comprehensive coverage of the city. To help you find your way around there’s a detailed street atlas inside, a useful public transport map in the backcover, plus a handy pull-out map.
