Set your home base in any of the great hotels in Agra and discover the beauty of this ancient metropolis on your next holiday.
Things to Do in Agra
After you book one of our Agra packages, join the millions that flock to the city every year to see the Taj Mahal. Located next to the Yamuna River, the Taj Mahal was commissioned by a Mughal emperor to serve as a tomb for his wife (what a hubby, right?!). Make sure you see this legendary marble mausoleum—it will take your breath away with its gleaming white façade and craftsmanship. For another memorable sight, head to the nearby Agra Fort, just under 3 kilometres away. The structure has been a cultural touchstone for more than 500 years. When you're ready for a change of pace, raise your glass and kick up your feet at one of the cocktail lounges located along Mahatma Gandhi Road, then relax in your Agra accommodation for the night.
