Edinburgh : Michelin's recommendations
Capital of Scotland and seat of the Scottish Parliament, the beautiful and verdant city of Edinburgh rises on a cluster of volcanic hills. It has two contrasting parts: the medieval Old Town is perched up on a rocky outcrop; the 19C New Town is laid out below. A huge variety of attractions, a host of festivals, most notably the BEdinburgh International Festival, and some excellent museums lure countless visitors from near and far.
