Vibrant and noisy, London is one of the world’s leading cities, an international capital of culture, education, fashion, music, finance, trade, and politics.

There's lots more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Primrose Hill, admire the striking features of Houses of Parliament, take a memorable tour with Tours, and admire the masterpieces at The Courtauld Gallery.

Athens of the North

World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Edinburgh Castle and St Giles' Cathedral. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Stirling Castle and Holyrood Abbey. Change things up with a short trip to Linlithgow Palace in Linlithgow (about 40 minutes away). There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at Grassmarket and don't miss a visit to The Real Mary King's Close.

Plan my Edinburgh trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Immerse yourself in a snow-capped mountain wonderland in Switzerland's serene Alpine setting. See the world-renowned Matterhorn, Switzerland's second-highest mountain at 4,478 m (14,962 ft) tall, or zoom down the mountains on toboggan, ski, or snowboard. In the warmer seasons hike around the rolling green hillsides covered with pine trees and picturesque aqua blue lakes. Luxurious cities dotted with cozy wooden chalets and colorful flowerbeds balance quaintness with first-class cultural offerings.
