There is no need to do more than this, but should you wish, you can take long walks or bicycle rides and it is definitely worth while to take time to stroll down to the village and explore. Breakfast.

Delhi
Delhi
Delhi is India's vibrant capital city. It is a busy, noisy, crowded city filled with modern urban sprawl shooting up around its ancient sites. Although Old Delhi fits the stereotype of narrow alleyways that are almost impossible to negotiate by car, New Delhi was laid out with wide tree-lined streets, and can be surprisingly green and peaceful. 
Agra & the Taj Mahal
Agra & the Taj Mahal
Agra is a medieval city on the banks of the Yamuna River. The famous monuments of the Taj Mahal and the Agra Fort are both here. The Taj Mahal is one of the most famous buildings in the world. It is the crowning glory of Mughal architecture in India. Not to be missed!
Jaipur Palace of the winds
Jaipur
Jaipur, popularly known as the Pink City, is the capital of Rajasthan state and the former capital of the princely state of Jaipur. Jaipur was the first planned city in India and unlike many other India cities, the walled city has broad, straight streets and is remarkable among pre-modern Indian cities for the width and regularity of its streets.
