We will be staying in Stellenbosch on a Sunday and would like to go to Franschhoek on Monday to do the chocolate tour before heading back to Cape Town. Should we go to Cape Town via Paarl and the N1 (?) or take the more southern route via the N2?
Which route would be more scenic and with less traffic? Are there sites other than wineries along either route that would be worth a stop?
On google maps it's 120 km or 1hr. and 40 mins. going either route. We would like to make it to our hotel (DoubleTree by Hilton, upper eastside) by 5:00 pm.
