Must Do

Maratha forts  

There are plenty of forts of the Peshwa era - almost all of them ruled by Shivaji - close to Pune. Sinhagad is less than an hour's drive away, and is the most popular destination. Shaniwar Wada, which was the seat of the Peshwas in the 18th and the 19th century, is in the heart of the town. Right next to it is Lal Mahal, where Shivaji spent a lot of his growing-up years. While travelling to the Sinhagad Fort, you can stop for a break at the Khadakvasla dam. Hrishikesh Kanitkar

Tips for Travellers

Traffic can be pretty chaotic in Pune, so if you're visiting for a few days, depend on auto-rickshaws or taxis. Avoid the headache of driving through traffic jams on your holiday.
