Breathtakingly large, Mexico City provides a home for almost 9 million people living in nearly 1,700 distinct neighborhoods.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Metropolitan Cathedral (Catedral Metropolitana) and Palacio de Bellas Artes. Your inner history buff will appreciate Zocalo and Basilica de Santa Maria de Guadalupe. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Mexico City: Sian Ka'an Biosphere Reserve (in Sian Ka'an) and Zona Arqueologica Teotihuacan (in San Juan Teotihuacan). There's still lots to do: examine the collection at National Museum of Anthropology (Museo Nacional de Antropologia), steep yourself in history at Chapultepec Castle, take a stroll through Alameda Central, and explore the ancient world of Templo Mayor Museum.
