Breathtakingly large, Mexico City provides a home for almost 9 million people living in nearly 1,700 distinct neighborhoods.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Historic Center (Centro Historico) and Zona Arqueologica Teotihuacan. Palacio de Bellas Artes and Museo Nacional de Antropologia will appeal to museum buffs. The adventure continues: delve into the lush surroundings at Bosque de Chapultepec, see the world from above with a helicopter tour, pause for some serene contemplation at Templo de La Enseñanza (Nuestra Señora del Pilar), and steep yourself in history at Basilica de Santa Maria de Guadalupe.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airports are Licenciado Benito Juarez International Airport, Querétaro Intercontinental Airport and General Francisco J. Mujica International Airport. In July, daytime highs in Mexico City are 27°C, while nighttime lows are 15°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 10th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
