You can't visit Agra without visiting the glorious Taj Mahal, erected in the mid-17th century and now one of the new Seven Wonders of the World. Its instantly recognizable towers, domes, and reflecting pool are simply stunning and a sight not to be missed. It would be prudent to pick from rental cars in Agra to get you to and from destinations around the city; this will make it easy to travel from the Taj Mahal to the Agra Fort a few miles away. The Agra Fort is an ancient structure featuring remarkable architecture; it's also home to the famed Delhi Gate. End your day by heading out of the city to the Wildlife SOS rescue center to see and even help care for some of the rescued elephants and bears that reside here. All this and more is possible with Agra vacation packages!
