What to Expect
In a city as large as that of Mexico with more than 22 million people, time and organization is very important to get the most out of the days of visit to this great city. In addition the City is not only large is also a city with more than four thousand years of history, a history in which we immerse ourselves walking through its streets, parks, archaeological sites or visiting one or more of its nearly 100 museums.
Looking to for you to have the best travel experience in Mexico City, we have designed a tour especially for those who have little time to enjoy this metropoli.
We start in the center and more precisely at the Zócalo, where it was once seated the capital of the Aztec empire, "La Gran Tenochtitlan" which was demolished after the Spanish conquest to build with the same stones the colonial city.
Walk through some of its busy streets in downtown and visit some of its buildings like the Metropolitan Cathedral, the National Palace, Fine Arts Palace and depending the season or the day we will be involved in the hustle, bustle and rivers of people who visit, live or work in this world heritage site.
Later we will drive along Paseo de la Reforma heading towards two of the most representative neighborhoods of the modern history of the city, the Roma and Condesa.
Like any big city Mexico City is a changing city that has developed and adapted to the needs and whims of its inhabitants, the Paseo de la Reforma Avenue has witnessed many of these changes for over a hundred years of changes that today we can still observe. On this avenue there are several monumental sculptures which also tell us about the different events that have shaped the city and identity, such as "The Angel of Independence" icon of the city , "La Diana Cazadora" and the latest creation "La columna del Bicentenario".
This same avenue leads to the Museum of Anthropology but before we pass the Roma and Condesa, where we will walk through some of the streets and parks that are characterized by its art nouveau architecture and with more contemporary styles. For its urban design, and for being the neighborhoods of early last century that are best preserved, Roma And Condesa are a nice for a walking or biking, plus this area offers a variety of options for eating, drinking or having fun whether day or night. Condesa is especially busy for nightlife , here you will find some of the Hip bars of the moment. So here we will have free time for everyone to choose the place of their choice to have their meals.
Then we continue by car to the Museum of Anthropology. Here you can admire some of the pieces of the vast pre-Hispanic art collection that houses the museum. Our guide will interpret different pieces as the "Sun Stone" or Aztec calendar, Coatlicue, and others through which we learn about the thought, life and culture of the different civilizations that developed in ancient Mexico.
