Experience the contrasts of Johannesburg, the City of Gold, from trendy Melville and upmarket Houghton to its vibrant inner city arts and culture

Egoli, City of Gold. They came from far and wide to strike it rich in Johannesburg when gold was discovered in 1886. Our multicultural City of Gold still pulsates with entrepreneurial energy, power and the jingle of money.

Your Johanneburg city tour sets off for Constitution Hill, home of South Africa’s Constitutional Court and site of Johannesburg’s Old Fort Prison (closed Sundays). After meandering through the quirky suburb of Melville with its vibey shops and trendy restaurants, it stops at Newtown, home of the Johannesburg Market Theatre. Museum Africa, which is Johannesburg’s premier cultural history museum, reminiscent of a 1950s shebeen or pub, and its here that you’ll really sense the soul of the inner city.
