Get ready as CarvanTrips takes you for an epic heritage ride down the historic lanes of South Mumbai! Cycling is one of the best ways to explore these parts of town as everything is nearby; the streets are in excellent condition!!
We all might have whiz past through these colonial heritage structures at some point, wondered for a second about them, and then probably went on with our busy city lives.
However, these structures reveal a different story as we time travel to the era of Portuguese and the British! The brown washed colonial structures provide a heady mix of beauty, history & nostalgia.
We’ll start our cycling trip from Colaba towards Gateway of India, explore the nearby structures and then cycle along the numerous heritage sites. On the way, we will stop for interesting stories, fun facts, breakfast and of course, selfies!
