Breathtakingly large, Mexico City provides a home for almost 9 million people living in nearly 1,700 distinct neighborhoods.
Popular historic sites such as Zona Arqueológica de Teotihuacan Estacionamiento Puerta 5 and Metropolitan Cathedral (Catedral Metropolitana) are in your itinerary. Get a sense of the local culture at Museo Nacional de Antropologia and Zocalo. Venture out of the city with trips to Puebla (Zocalo, Catedral Basilica de Puebla, & more) and Robert Brady Museum (in Cuernavaca). There's much more to do: admire the masterpieces at Palacio de Bellas Artes, don't miss a visit to Museo Frida Kahlo, take a peaceful walk through Bosque de Chapultepec, and explore the ancient world of Museo del Templo Mayor.
