Udaipur comes out on top for its charming setting and multitude of rather lovely palaces. Thanks to its beautiful setting spread along the shores of Lake Pichola, Udaipur has long been considered India’s most romantic city. It was founded in 1567 by Maharana Udai Singh after his capital at Chittorgarh was captured by the Mughal emperor Akbar, it’s lakefront becoming a series of ornate palaces and havelis complete the turrets and balconies. Behind this fairy tale façade, you’ll find the maze of narrow, atmospheric streets that wind through the old town which are wonderfully rewarding to exploring. Most spectacular though is the Lake Palace, now a hotel, which seemingly floats on the surface of the lake, and featured in James Bond film ‘Octopussy’.
