You've probably seen pictures of Agra in your life, but you might not have known it. The Indian city has been mesmerizing world travelers for centuries, and it's your turn to see it in real life. Home to exquisite works of Mughal architecture (have you heard of the Taj Mahal?), Agra is a bustling city with a well-developed tourist industry. Thanks to recent infrastructural improvements, you can now fly to Agra on scheduled commercial flights. The Agra Airport (AGR) handles all commercial flights to Agra, connecting the destination to several major cities in the area. Combine a vacation package to Agra with trips to Delhi and Jaipur to get a diverse view of what India has to offer.
A regional bus system in Agra connects AGR with many stops in the surrounding area. If you're staying at one of the Agra hotels close to the airport, though, you may find the bus system to be a little impractical. Instead, this might be a good opportunity to try a ride in a rickshaw! Your bartering skills might be honed as well, since prices are usually negotiable (make sure you agree on one before getting in). Taxis frequent the airport, and there are many options to get you to your hotel. Here's a tip: know where you want to start your sightseeing once you arrive on flights to Agra. You will find the sights are numerous, and you may find yourself lingering at the majesty of the Taj Mahal longer than expected.
There's something about treasures of the past that make us feel more alive today, and gazing upon Agra's treasures will instill a feeling unlike any other. Agra flights have never been easier, so take advantage of the deals Travelocity has to offer. Save up to $537 when you book a flight and a hotel at the same time with Travelocity, and don't miss out on this undeniable world landmark. Step back in time and into Agra with amazing deals!
