When Maximilian was imposed as Emperor of Mexico by Napoleon III, he ordered a wide avenue cut through the city from Chapultepec Castle to the city center; originally named Paseo de la Emperatriz, it is today Mexico City's famous boulevard, Paseo de la Reforma. Maximilian was born in the Schönbrunn Palace in Vienna, capital of the Austrian Empire. The youngest... More

It is one of the most important avenues in Mexico. Next to El Castillo de Chapultepec and is full of trees and circles all the way, it's structure reminds me of champ Élysées in some parts and in others full of modern architecture. Lots of high class restaurants, hotels, stores. Is secure to walk on the area, not later 8:30... More

Compared to Champ Elysse, Via dei Fori Imperiali, La Gran Via, Piccadilly, I like better Paseo de la Reforma.

Large avenue with great restaurants, hotels and pubs. It's the nicest avenue of Mexico City with beautiful monuments and on Sunday it's closed for jogging and cycling.

Paseo de la reforma is undoubtedly the grandest most beautiful avenue in Mexico City. Take a walk or go cycling on a Sunday morning when it is closed off to cars...you won't regret it. Enjoy the Diana, the Angel, and some of the city's most impressive architecture.

On March 1 I used Ecobici to rent a bicycle for a day from a self-service kiosk on the Paseo de lal Reforma. My credit card was debited 1590 pesos (90 pesos for a one day rental and 1500 pesos for a deposit). According to their documentation, the deposit was to be returned in five business days. By that time... More

It was built in the 1860s and modeled on Europe's best boulevards such as the Champs Elysées in Paris and the Ringstrasse in Vienna. It is home of embassies, museums, hotels, office buildings, banks, government buildings, and even a zoo!. Events with public art exhibitions and marches are regularly taking place. This is one of Mexico's city most interesting place... More

This avenue is so long and large that it is really hard to do it by foot. We choose to "visit" it by public bus. Very pleasant ride, with lots of shops alongside, statues, roundabouts etc.

A beautiful street on any day with its glorious glorietas (roundabouts with impressive statues and fountains in the center), it's especially fun on Sundays when it's closed to vehicular traffic. We positioned ourselves near the statue of Diana the huntress and enjoyed watching bikers, trikers, skaters, skateboarders, pedestrians, dog walkers and others do their thing!
