25. Edinburgh, the Scottish capital since the 15th century

The two different areas give a unique character to the city.
The old town contains 16th and 17th century noble and merchant houses that worth a visit.
The streets are in the medieval fishbone pattern, with narrow streets and courts leading from the High Street.
The new town has a concentration of neo-classical buildings combined with gardens which form private and public open spaces.
24. Eze is a medieval town built in the Alps, France
This place is considered as the only authentic medieval city in the Alps.
The area has been inhabited since 2000 BC; it was occupied by both the Romans and the Moors.
