In this guided tour through Edinburgh you will be able to visit some of the most spectacular botanical gardens as well as museums with art from the most famous artists in the world. Edinburgh has much to offer, especially with its Old Town and its New Town. The museums and gardens stand out in the Scottish capital. The National Gallery of Modern Art exhibits works by Matisse, Kirchner, Braque, Picasso, Kokoschka Bacon and Warhol. In the gardens, we will see the Landform by the architect Charles Jencks, a perfect combination of sculpture and land art. Across the street, we will find another important museum, the Dean Gallery, with works by Monet, Van Gogh, and Tiziano.

During a short walk we will pass by the Royal Botanic Gardens of Edinburgh, a center for experimentation and conservation of nature, a very special place for the city’s resident to take a stroll.

We will pass by the Queen Street Gardens, arriving at the Fruitmarket Gallery, situated on the centric Market Street, former fruit market transformed into a contemporary art center by the architect Richard Murphy. Be sure to visit the cafeteria and bookstore specialized in art and architecture.
