This an ultimate tour for the admirers of scholarly classical beauty. With your architect-guide, take in the Scottish Enlightenment spirit on a walk through "a model city" - the largest Georgian planned town development in the world. For an exclusive insight into the chic Georgian lifestyle, we will enter a private park - available only with us, or if your aunt lives on Queen street! We will soak in the neoclassical ornaments under the starlit dome of the most impressive banking hall in Europe. Then find one of the last remaining original mews that served the grand townhouses in the Georgian era. While walking its ordered, symmetrical grid of streets lined with Neoclassical tenements (yes, tenements!) we will learn the purpose of the sunken basements and why Edinburgh won't clean its blackened sandstone facades! Through the masterplan drawn by the young James Craig and buildings by celebrated British architects such as Robert Adam, we will unfold the cultural context of Scottish Enlightenment, as well as the economical and political influence of the union between Scotland and England.

You will learn of the Georgian New Town while enjoying a vibrant quarter of Edinburgh full of high-end retail and offices. We will encounter designer clad professionals lunching alfresco in deluxe restaurants, and well-to-do residents walking their labradoodles. New Town's architectural status is unique in the world in terms of its size, monumentality and degree of preservation, but it definitely does not get enough traveler's attention!
