Exploring Edinburgh...

"Rough Guide Directions Edinburgh" is the latest edition of a compact and wonderfully useful guide to exploring Scotland's traditional first city. Edinburgh offers a fascinating mixture of ancient and modern attractions, much of which can be easily reached on foot or by public transport. This guide, with its descriptions, directions, and included maps, get close to a one-stop resource for visitors. Edinburgh's top six attractions (Museum of Scotland, Scottish Parliament, the Royal Mile, Edinburgh Castle, the Forth Bridge, and Carlton Hill) are fairly well known. Perhaps less well known are Edinburgh's Festival, a month-long cultural orgy covering many styles and numerous venues. Beyond the Festival is the rich layer of history still to be found in various palaces, museums, and other sites, along with world class shopping, restaurants, and culture. In Edinburgh, there is much to entertain and amuse. The guide is broken out by district, with maps, short descriptions, and an excellent selection of photographs to guide the tourist around. The front chapters of the book point out the most popular attractions, while the back chapters cover some basic knowledge for travelers. "Rough Guide Directions Edinburgh" is very highly recommended as a excellent guide for the visitor to Edinburgh.
