Mexico City is the fascinating capital that offers the visitor endless options. One of the largest metropolitan areas in the world, with 16 boroughs and more than 300 neighbourhoods, it might seem a bit overwhelming to the first-time visitor, though it doesn’t have to be.
Many of the most visited tourist attractions in Mexico City are concentrated in the historic centre, including the Plaza de la Constitucion or Zocalo, the National Palace, Metropolitan Cathedral, Templo Mayor, Palace of Fine Arts and Alameda Park. A few blocks north of the Palace of Fine Arts, Plaza Garibaldi is one of the best places in Mexico City to hear live mariachi music.
To the west of the historic centre, the Plaza de la Republica is home to the newly refurbished Revolution Monument and National Museum. Chapultepec Park, the largest in Mexico City, is divided into three sections and home to several of the capital’s top tourist attractions, including Chapultepec Castle, the Modern Art Museum and the National Museum of Anthropology. Most museums in the City are closed on Mondays.
You can explore the neighbourhoods of Zona Rosa, Roma, Condesa, Coyoacan and San Angel. Home to lovely parks, plazas, shops, markets, cafes and some of the top tourist attractions in Mexico City, these artsy neighbourhoods are especially popular among visitors to the city and foreign residents. Nearby in Polanco you’ll find some of Mexico City’s top nightspots and chic restaurants.
Further south, the University City campus of Mexico’s National Autonomous University is known for its modern architecture and impressive murals that are the work of some of Mexico’s top artists. The University Cultural Centre hosts a variety of events and performances.
Plan a day trip to the ancient Aztec pyramids at Teotihuacán, located 50km (31 miles) northeast of the city.
