Mexico City ©
Breathtakingly large, Mexico City provides a home for almost 9 million people living in nearly 1,700 distinct neighborhoods.
Your day by day itinerary now includes Trajineras Xochimilco, Museo del Palacio de Bellas Artes, Bosque de Chapultepec, and other attractions you added. Visit Zona Arqueológica de Teotihuacan Estacionamiento Puerta 5 and Museo del Templo Mayor for their historical value. Get a sense of the local culture at Museo Nacional de Antropologia and Museo Frida Kahlo. There's still lots to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Metropolitan Cathedral (Catedral Metropolitana), take a stroll through Historic Center (Centro Historico), and steep yourself in history at Basilica de Santa Maria de Guadalupe.
