Sweeping beaches, towering hilltops, and picturesque vineyards adorn the landscape of Cape Town, dominated by the imposing Table Mountain.
Victoria & Alfred Waterfront and Castle of Good Hope are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Do your shopping at Greenmarket Square and Shimansky Jewellers. Change things up with these side-trips from Cape Town: Hermanus (Funky Vibes & Hemingways of Hermanus), Stony Point Penguin Colony (in Betty's Bay) and Peregrine Farm Stall (in Grabouw). And it doesn't end there: take some stellar pictures from Cape of Good Hope, see the interesting displays at District Six Museum, step off the mainland to explore Robben Island, and look for gifts at Prins & Prins.

To see photos, more things to do, other places to visit, and tourist information, you can read our Cape Town itinerary planner .
