Profile: Cape Town City Centre

Cape Town City Centre is where you can immerse yourself in the city’s buzz. Among the city's prim colonial facades, you can enjoy first-rate multicultural cuisine, splash the cash in a glossy mall, rummage for bargains at the Greenmarket Square flea market, or take in the vibrant colors of Adderley Street’s sweet-smelling flower stalls.

If you’re a bit of a culture junkie, Cape Town City Centre has no shortage of theaters, museums, and galleries. The Iziko South African Museum and the Iziko South African National Gallery are home to some of South Africa’s most gawp-worthy treasures.
