Tagaytay is spread out for some 15km along the ridge, with most places of interest along the Aguinaldo Hwy and Calamba Rd. Tagaytay Rotunda, at the intersection of the road to Silang, is a useful landmark that separates the eastern and western halves of Tagaytay Ridge. Just off the rotunda is the main commercial centre, Olivarez Plaza.

Sitting directly down the hill from Tagaytay is the small lakeside town of Talisay, where bangkas depart for Volcano Island.
