Edinburgh is one of Europe's most beautiful cities. Again, even the landscape is contrasting, with a series of rocky hills overlooking a windswept sea. The town is entwined with the landscape - Buildings, monuments, and castles are perched atop crags and cliffs. The Old Town has a jumble of medieval tenements, the turreted skyline of the Royal Mile, falling off below Castle Rock. The New Town, sometimes called the Athens of the North, is a neat grid of neoclassical respectability, all columns and capitals, porticoes and pediments... It's no surprise that this city inspired the story The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde.
