This is the shopping heart of Caracas. Unfortunately it is pretty much always crowded but if you are up for some shopping and don't mind, it's definitely worth a visit.

Nice place to visit a walk around, you can see gardens, fountain (at night you can see it with lights) and see El Avila mountain. In this point you are close to UCV and Caracas's downtown.

This is close to the geographical center of the city, but who cares. It has a nice fountain, helped by attractive lighting at night, but there is essentially nothing to do at Plaza Venezuela. There used to be open air cafes where you could have a coffee in the early evening, but now, JUST WATCH OUT. No restaurants to speak... More

The water fountain is just beaufiful, and it's been a city icon for decades. The lighting at night makes it a nice show. Beware that as in many big cities, you cannot walk around unaware, or you could be a victim. It's better to go with locals or pass by car.
