Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavored souvenir shops, and pipers
that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the
place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as
the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the

Edinburgh's finest Italian Restaurant Wine Bar, Divino Enoteca is a hidden gem in the heart of Edinburgh's old town yet only minutes from the bustle of the city. The archetypal wine cellar married with Italian 'chic', Divino is charming and elegant, with soft lighting and exposed stone walls perfectly complemented by the comfy leather chairs, banquettes and booths, rich oak floors and an electic mix of pictures, lanterns and object d'art creating a warm and welcoming ambience.
