Explore the best of Edinburgh

When you think of Edinburgh, you probably think of the hills, tartan, Edinburgh Castle and pubs. But this lovely city is all these and a lot more. Visit Edinburgh and you will have plenty of things to see here. Stroll nearby Arthur’s Seat, explore the Museum of Scotland, wander in the Scottish Parliament and discover the hidden gems within Dunbars Close. Be accompanied by a beautiful escort Paris and your vacation in Edinburgh will be more than delightful!

Top tourist attractions in Edinburgh

Even since the 15th century Edinburgh is the capital of Scotland. The city has a dramatic skyline due to the 7 hills on which Edinburgh was built and the architecture, history and culture will amaze tourists from all over the world. Come to Edinburgh accompanied by a stylish escort Paris and discover together the treasures within Scotland’s capital city. Go for a morning hike on Arthur’s Seat, wash your face with the hill’s morning dew and take your healthy breakfast at Hemma, the first gem you will find at the foot of Arthur’s Seat.

Head to the National Museum of Scotland, soak up the art in this impressive building that was recently refurbished, dash through the history of the world and move to the Balcony Café for a delicious treat that will restore your energy. Enjoy a savoury lunch in the stylish rooftop Tower Restaurant then go with your charming escort to the rooftop garden for a moment of peace.

Catalonian architect Enric Miralles designed a majestic building when he created The Scottish Parliament. Admire this award-winning building for several minutes, enjoy a free guided tour inside the Parliament, but do not waste too much time here. You must go with your gorgeous escort Paris to Stockbridge, this peaceful and green neighbourhood that we all would want to live in. Charming streets and squares are great for an afternoon stroll, while the views of the Water of Leith and Royal Botanic Gardens are just breath-taking.

St Mary’s Cathedral and St Giles’ Cathedral are two iconic attractions that should not be missed if you spend your vacation in Edinburgh. The stained glass originated from the 19th century, the carved angel in the Thistle Chapel and bright light will create an idyllic atmosphere in St Giles’ Cathedral, while St Mary will impress you with the stained glass by Sir Eduardo Paolozzi and divine Phoebe Anna Traquair murals.

Discover the city by the side of an enchanting escort Paris

Your delightful Paris escort will be more than pleased to offer you her company while you will explore the tourist hotspots within Edinburgh. Visit the unfinished mini-Parthenon on Calton Hill, venture in the 12th century Duddingston Village, spend a lazy afternoon on Portobello Beach and wander inside the Edinburgh Castle. Raise your prayers in the Rosslyn Chapel, delight your taste buds with an authentic Scotch Whisky experience and make sure you will not miss the Royal Yacht Britannia either. Invite an alluring escort Paris to keep you company throughout your journey and you will sure have a memorable vacation in Edinburgh!
