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. Don’t miss a cruise on the lake for the very best views of both the city and the magical lake palace, that seemingly floats on the water’s surface.
