Delhi, city of the Indian national heritage
Book a ticket to Delhi and discover the exceptional charm of the subcontinent. The capital of India is a fascinating mosaic of cultures, which offers the traveler a unique and unforgettable experience.
Delhi travel guides highlight the paradox of this two faced city, both quiet and lively, sober and colorful…This startling contrast reflects both stages of the Indian capital's development. Old Delhi, the historical center with countless tiny stained streets, is the epitome of the Indian culture. You can walk by traditional houses and have different encounters with sacred cows and rickshaw drivers. Make sure you visit the Red Fort and Jama Masjid, the highest mosque in the country! The bazaars also offer an experience that will put your senses to the test, in the middle of incense and music that drive you into the unique atmosphere of an Indian metropolis.
New Delhi, the flamboyant, was built much later and reveals a calmer and more luxurious face of India… The wide avenues and the sumptuous hotels make the city a privileged resting place, just a few steps away from beautiful temples and cultural sites such as the Gateway of India, the Jantar Mantar and Humayun's Tomb, haven of peace amidst the typical bustle of Delhi. Naturally, a visit to Gandhi's last abode is also necessary !
A flight to Delhi is the essential starting point for a trip in northern India. The city is connected to Agra by a direct train line, where you can admire the splendid Taj Mahal. This sumptuous monument alone, designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, justifies a trip to India !
