City of Palaces

Breathtakingly large, Mexico City provides a home for almost 9 million people living in nearly 1,700 distinct neighborhoods.
Kick off your visit on the 8th (Tue): take in the spiritual surroundings of Metropolitan Cathedral (Catedral Metropolitana), then admire the masterpieces at Palacio de Bellas Artes, then browse the exhibits of Museo del Templo Mayor, and finally don't miss a visit to Zocalo. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: ponder the world of politics at National Palace (Palacio Nacional), take an in-depth tour of Museo Casa Luis Barragan, then get a new perspective on nature at Museo Nacional de Antropologia, and finally see the interesting displays at Museo Frida Kahlo.
