On the 13th (Sat), examine the collection at Museo Frida Kahlo, thenmake a trip to Zocalo, thentake an in-depth tour of Museo del Templo Mayor, and finally contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Metropolitan Cathedral (Catedral Metropolitana). On the 14th (Sun), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: ponder the world of politics at National Palace (Palacio Nacional), admire the masterpieces at Palacio de Bellas Artes, thenexplore the historical opulence of Chapultepec Castle, and finally get a new perspective on nature at Museo Nacional de Antropologia.
