City of Palaces

Breathtakingly large, Mexico City provides a home for almost 9 million people living in nearly 1,700 distinct neighborhoods.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Chapultepec Castle and Palacio de Bellas Artes. Popular historic sites such as Historic Center (Centro Historico) and Zona Arqueológica de Teotihuacan Estacionamiento Puerta 5 are in your itinerary. Change things up with these side-trips from Mexico City: Xochicalco (in Miacatlan), Robert Brady Museum (in Cuernavaca) and Tepozteco (in Tepoztlan). Spend the 3rd (Wed) exploring nature at Cumbres Del Ajusco National Park. The adventure continues: learn more about the world around you at Museo Nacional de Antropologia, don't miss a visit to Zocalo, contemplate the long history of Basilica de Santa Maria de Guadalupe, and let your taste buds guide you at a local gastronomic tour.

To see reviews, photos, maps, and more tourist information, refer to the Mexico City travel planner.

There's lots more to do: explore the world behind art at Prado National Museum, examine the collection at Museo Nacional Thyssen-Bornemisza, contemplate the long history of Museo Cerralbo, and wander the streets of Gran Via.
