Breathtakingly large, Mexico City provides a home for almost 9 million people living in nearly 1,700 distinct neighborhoods.
Step off the beaten path and head to Archaeological Zone of Xochicalco and Piedra Herrada Sanctuary. When in Mexico City, make a side trip to see Pyramid of the Sun in San Juan Teotihuacan, approximately 1h 15 min away. The adventure continues: examine the collection at National Museum of Anthropology (Museo Nacional de Antropologia), make a trip to Murales de Diego Rivera en la Secretaria de Educacion Publica, contemplate the long history of Chapultepec Castle, and explore the world behind art at Palacio de Bellas Artes.
