Itinerary

  • Day 1
    Arrive Udaipur
    • You arrive Udaipur, the City of Lakes at Udaipur Domestic Airport.

      With a poetic setting around the shores of Lake Pichola and a backdrop of gentle rolling hills, it doesn't take long to figure out why Udaipur is easily one of the most romantic cities in Rajasthan. This Venice of the East is a brilliant kaleidoscope of myriad fairytale marble palaces, narrow lanes, age-old temples and quaint havelis.

      Visit Udaipur and its inimitable beauty and historic past will linger on with you for a lifetime and more.

    • Visit the City Palace.

      Later in the afternoon, visit to sections of the striking City Palace Complex. Amidst blocks of pastel-colored buildings, the City Palace surfaces towards the sky through the rooftops. Lattice balconies and intricately carved windows adorn the exterior of the grand palace, while sparkling mosaic tiles and stain glass embellish its interior.

      As you leave your vehicle to walk to the City Palace, you can actually feel the roughness of the ash grey stone under your feet. This is the pathway till you enter the main building. Walk past the three-arched gateway known as Tripolia to enter the first courtyard where the royals would get off their elephants, horses and camels.

      Experience the low ceilinged narrow corridors that take you up the narrow winding staircases with uneven heighted steps - though ancient, they were an advance strategic mechanism of defence. Can you imagine an enemy being able to breach the palace?
