Sweeping beaches, towering hilltops, and picturesque vineyards adorn the landscape of Cape Town, dominated by the imposing Table Mountain.
Shop till you drop at Old Biscuit Mill and Canal Walk Shopping Centre. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Grotto Beach and Bloubergstrand Beach. Explore Cape Town's surroundings by going to Franschhoek (The Franschhoek Motor Museum & Boschendal Manor & Winery), Stony Point Penguin Colony (in Betty's Bay) and The Book Collector (in Hermanus). There's lots more to do: head off the coast to Robben Island, stop by Darling Olives, enjoy the sand and surf at Boulders Beach, and examine the collection at District Six Museum.

To see photos, ratings, more things to do, and tourist information, go to the Cape Town itinerary planner.
