Sweeping beaches, towering hilltops, and picturesque vineyards adorn the landscape of Cape Town, dominated by the imposing Table Mountain.
Go for a jaunt from Cape Town to Franschhoek to see First South African Perfume Museum about 1h 10 min away. There's lots more to do: take some stellar pictures from Cape Point, enjoy the sand and surf at Clifton Beaches, get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Two Oceans Aquarium, and look for all kinds of wild species at Platteklip Gorge.

To find other places to visit, where to stay, and tourist information, use the Cape Town online trip itinerary maker .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Cape Town International Airport. In May, plan for daily highs up to 70°F, and evening lows to 51°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 30th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
