Breathtakingly large, Mexico City provides a home for almost 9 million people living in nearly 1,700 distinct neighborhoods.
Templo Mayor Museum and National Museum of Anthropology (Museo Nacional de Antropologia) will appeal to museum buffs. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Zocalo and Zona Arqueologica Teotihuacan. Explore Mexico City's surroundings by going to Pyramid of the Sun (in San Juan Teotihuacan) and Cuernavaca (Archaeological Zone of Xochicalco & Robert Brady Museum). Next up on the itinerary: explore the world behind art at Palacio de Bellas Artes, explore the ancient world of Metropolitan Cathedral (Catedral Metropolitana), steep yourself in history at Chapultepec Castle, and see the interesting displays at Frida Kahlo Museum.
