See the city, sea, and landscapes from the top of Table Mountain, which you reach by trail or cable car.

Victoria and Alfred
It's a working port and the tourism epi-center of Cape Town. Draws include restaurants, bars, nightlife, shops, tour operators, and people watching. V&A (as locals simply call this district) also has an aquarium and a marine museum.
Nelson Mandela and other political activists were imprisoned here during the Apartheid days. Half-day guided tours via boats leave from V&A.
