Exploring Edinburgh

For the first time I will travel along with childhood friends to fulfill  a promise of reunion in Edinburgh.Τwo of our friends are living in the capital of Scotland, they are economic migrants.I have not traveled to the united kingdom again in the past but i have heard so much about the beauties of this city and I am curious to discover them.The best time to visit the Edinburgh is from spring to autumn. In August take place most of the city's festivals.We chose the winter as ticket prices were very tempting!!
Edinburgh is often referred to as "North Athens" for many reasons a first comparison between the two cities revealed that they had the same topography as the old city of Edinburgh corresponded to the Acropolis in Athens.

Also,  Edinburgh was the center of the Enlightenment, many hoped that it would culturally influence London, in the same way that Athens influenced Rome.

I enjoy the walks in the deserted streets of the village, listening only to the sounds of nature.It's magical feeling when  you are trying to forget  the city's dungeon.

I chose to travel with  a Motocycle  since the weather was very good for the season and secondly we move more comfortable without restrictions on the island.
