Sweeping beaches, towering hilltops, and picturesque vineyards adorn the landscape of Cape Town, dominated by the imposing Table Mountain.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Robben Island and District Six Museum. Take a break from the city and head to Boulders Beach and Table Mountain. There's still lots to do: do a tasting at Klein Constantia, enjoy the sand and surf at Clifton Beaches, see the interesting displays at South African Jewish Museum, and buy something for everyone on your list at Cape Quarter Mall.

To find maps, other places to visit, reviews, and more tourist information, go to the Cape Town itinerary planner.
