Edinburgh travel tips
1) Take an umbrella and a warm sweater to Edinburgh
Edinburgh often has bad weather. The proximity of the sea often causes fog (haar in Scottish) and cool winds. It's never really hot in Edinburgh: the average air temperature in July is +18 Celsius, +12 Celsius in October, +6 Celsius in November, and +10 Celsius in April. Sunny days are rather rare in Edinburgh, so be sure to take an umbrella and some warm clothes with you.
2) Prefer pubs to regular restaurants in Edinburgh
Scotland is primarily about pubs. You can either drink a glass of beer in them or have a tasty and cheap lunch. The average price for the main course in pubs is £6-8 (€7-9). The portions are very large and flavoured with real Scottish culinary culture.
3) Enjoy paintings by Rubens and Monet at the Scottish National Gallery in Edinburgh
The Scottish National Gallery is not inferior to many European museums and contains many paintings by Rubens, Santi, Monet, and Van Gogh. Moreover, the entrance to the museum is free any day of the week! Another place for art lovers is the Scottish Portrait Gallery, where you can admire self-portraits of famous artists and exhibitions of photographers.
