What is the name of Edinburgh's extinct volcano?

Castle Rock, on which Edinburgh Castle is built, is the eroded remnant of the basalt plug of an unnamed, extinct volcano. Arthur's Seat, about a mile away, is the main peak of a group of volcanic hills of the same age and composition as Castle Rock. Features on Arthur's Seat suggest that there were multiple volcanic vents in the area 350 million years ago. Subsequent glacial erosion has left the isolated features seen today.

Italy
Edinburgh

How long is flight from Edinburgh to Italy?

Hi! Well, it depends from which part of Italy. I'm from Milan and I've been once to Edinburgh: the flight took about 2 hours 1/2. But Milan is in the North, so flying to Rome should take some 30-40 minutes more, while flying to Sicily (southmost part of Italy) will take you up to 1 hour 1/2 more!

Hope it can help!

Cheers!
