Brief

Mexico City was built in the years following the conquest in 1521, on the ruins of Tenochtitlan, the capital of the Aztec empire, in the middle of the now drained Lake Texcoco.

Tour Detail

Nowadays it´s the oldest capital city of the Americas with a metropolitan area that counts around 24 million inhabitants (depending where the limits of the metropolitan area are set). Mexico City, with its distinct mestizo culture, blending native Indian (Nahuatl) and Spanish heritages, has become one of the most dynamic and exciting cities of the world. To know Mexico you need to know Mexico City!

This guided tour will take you to the historical centre of Mexico City, listed by UNESCO as World Heritage. Your visit will include the “Zocalo”, the heart of the city, where you will visit the Metropolitan Cathedral, one of the oldest and largest of the Americas, and the National Palace, where you can admire the famous murals of Diego Rivera. You will also see the ruins of the Templo Mayor, one of the most important temples of the Aztecs in their ancient capital city of Tenochtitlan. The Templo Mayor is thought to be located on the exact spot where the Aztecs saw the eagle perching on a cactus with a snake in its beak. This symbolized for the Aztecs that they had reached their promised land. We will also visit a crafts shop where you will have the opportunity to buy souvenirs. Finally, before returning to your hotel, we will take a drive down the iconic Paseo de la Reforma Avenue.

 

RECOMMENDATIONS

Wear comfortable clothes and shoes. Bring your camera and some extra cash for souvenirs, food, and drinks.

 

OTHER REMARKS

On Sundays, the explications about the Cathedral will be outside the Cathedral and Paseo de la Reforma Avenue will not be visited as it is closed for traffic. On Mondays the Anthropology Museum as well as the National Palace are closed (on other days of the week the National Palace might be closed because of political reasons without previous notice).
This tour is operated in shared basis. Please contact us for rates for a private tour.
