    I am traveling to Delhi with my family from Nagpur. We have a list of places that we will be visiting there and would still have some days remaining.

    We would like to know what places near Delhi to visit which can be covered in 3 to 4 days. We would be relying on public transport, so won't have many problems getting to places.

    Please do also mention the distance from Delhi to the places you will mention.

    Thank you.
