Breathtakingly large, Mexico City provides a home for almost 9 million people living in nearly 1,700 distinct neighborhoods.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Museo Nacional de Antropologia and Museo Frida Kahlo. Popular historic sites such as Zona Arqueológica de Teotihuacan Estacionamiento Puerta 5 and Basilica de Santa Maria de Guadalupe are in your itinerary. Change things up with these side-trips from Mexico City: Tepozteco (in Tepoztlan), Xochicalco (in Miacatlan) and Robert Brady Museum (in Cuernavaca). Spend the 3rd (Wed) exploring nature at Cumbres Del Ajusco National Park. There's much more to do: take a stroll through Historic Center (Centro Historico), stroll around Bosque de Chapultepec, make a trip to Paseo de la Reforma, and stop by Coyoacan.

To find where to stay, traveler tips, photos, and more tourist information, you can read our Mexico City online trip itinerary builder.

Madrid is known for its cultural and artistic heritage, lively nightlife, and a dynamic culinary scene.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Alcazar of Segovia and Monastery of San Juan de los Reyes. Popular historic sites such as Royal Palace of Madrid and Basilica de San Vicente are in your itinerary. Explore Madrid's surroundings by going to Catedral de Segovia (in Segovia), Toledo (Church of Santo Tomé, Catedral Primada, &more) and Playa del Alberche (in Aldea del Fresno). The adventure continues: admire the masterpieces at Museo Sorolla, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Cathedral of Avila, steep yourself in history at Plaza Mayor, and don't miss a visit to The Four Posts.
