We had a very busy day ! Even today we went to the castle and walked around. We saw the exhibition of the royal guards and wars , the royal palace, the chapel that is the only thing we could not phitograph.
Then we climbed calton hill. I had seen mouses! Wasn’t scare they were even cute somehow. Like gas gas . Anyway it’s nice the view but was a bit disappointing because there is nothing special . The national monument .. yesss but it’s creepy .
Lunch In George street. Very posh and all festive . le Monde.
Even crackers !!! And a gift!
Nice hamburger with bernaise sauce .
Lawnmarket : very nice ! We did a tour with the bus just to have a glimpse.
And now we are having dinner at laila’s which I spotted and that seems good
Here cinema is very cheap!
Intense day .
First the visit of my fave place ! The royal Britannia ! As seen in the crown! Bellissimo. So interesting to learn what’s inside the daily life. Old pictures. Where the officials slept. Almost worst than my camper.
I have taken so many photos! Now I am off to see a movie . Knives out . So I will write again later . My photos . Beware they are soooo much !
Then holyrood house. Bad part? As usual when the queen is the owner we cannot take pictures. It was so nice inside that I left my heart not being able to make a full set.but some sneaky.. I did . Sadly not the best rooms. The abbey is very nice too. This Edinburgh is amazing . But when I came with ANDREA what did we see? Here the link for my photos .
Not the interior. I am not so brave but I still have in mind the dining table all set for Christmas . Amazing !
And then in the afternoon the Scottish national gallery that is free. Amazing paintings.
Some TIZIANO , Raffaello , canaletto , van gogh.. great to see and unmissable.
This is Seurat. I am in love.
We passed by the area of Leith – ex poor area. The Scottish parlament. Cannongate that is close to our hotel .
Here ‘s the link to see the collection
Posto carino su Leith street
Mio fiuto pazzesco. Qui ci sono posti carini e tantissimo da vedere .
Provate le famose Polpettine di polipo
Erano buonissime. Posto carino!
First day of walking around .
And early dinner .
Good very good . We tried to stay light. Not even appetizer.
We walked mainly along prince street and the Christmas market today . The big tour will start tomorrow .
Here you can see all my photos
Ormai è diventato il nostro posto.
So far , I can call it out place.
Appetizer: cheese fondue and egg.
Special menu for the season. And by the way this is a great hotel!
Pumpkin Gnocchetti with deer sauce . Ragù di cervo. Simply delicious .
