Welcome to Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland: Edinburgh is recognised around the world for its beautiful architecture. Century-old castles, cobbled streets and old houses make the city a truly unique and one-of-a-kind experience.  Edinburgh is a majestic city that offers something for everyone, and known as one of Europe's most beautiful destinations for good reason. Whether you’re looking for a culture fix, buzzing nightlife, rolling hills or delicious food, this city has it all. 
Who hasn’t dreamt of visiting Scotland and its famous and beautiful landscapes?

DISCOVER EDINBURGH is an innovative project whose purpose is to make the participants live a professional experience for those who love photography and video making

The main goal of the project is to valorise and promote the magical city of Edinburgh, in Scotland,through photos, reportage, videos made by photographers (amateurs or not) from different places of the world. DISCOVER EDINBURGH wants to enrich the professional and academic path of the photographer, moreover it wants to enrich his portfolio.

The tours of the city are organized in collaboration with Alan, a professiona local guide, who knows all the sights of Edinburgh and will take you on a guided tour Exactly:

1° Tour "The Royal Mile": Visit of The Royal Mile + Gladstone's Land + Riddles Court + Grassmarket + Victoria Street + Greyfriars + Old City Walls + St Giles Cathederal + Canongate Kirk + Whitehorse Close + Scottish Parliament + Holyrood Palace.

2° Tour "Dean Village": this is one of Edinburgh's oldest and most colourful villages that dates back to the 1100's. Only a 5 minute walk from Edinburghs centre, is an oasis of calm, colour and culture. Also known as the "Water of Leith Village", this neighborhood played an important role in the history of Edinburgh: for over 800 years it was one of the richest areas thanks to the presence of the ancient water mills.

Further, we will visit one of the most beautiful and important spot in Edinburgh: Edinburgh Castle! Edinburgh Castle is one of the oldest fortified places in Europe. With a long rich history as a royal residence, military garrison, prison and fortress, it is alive with many exciting tales.

We will also visit the most beautiful panoramic points in all of Edinburgh: Calton Hill. In addition to admiring a wonderful panorama, here you can visit several important monuments, such as the National Monument of Scotland. But one of the most photographed is certainly the Dugald Stewart Monument.

Last but not least, we will visit one of the most important museum in all Edinburgh: National Museum of Scotland.
