As one of the oldest parts of the cities, many pedestrian streets that are closed to traffic, shops, restaurants, and of course the Zocalo and the Metropolitan Cathedral

“New peatonal streets”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

Several of the main Centro Historico streets have been converted in peatonal streets, Now you can visit Mexico's downtown better than never. Its environment is now comparable to historic headquarters of European cities.

“Nice...during day time.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2014

Don't miss the Paseo....but be wise and program you visit during the day. It´s well guarded and you will have a better look of the architecture. Just don't go walking around with a map.

“No downtown visit? No Mexico experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2014

You have to go, walk, visit and eat in Mexico City Downtown area to really get a flavor of what Mexico is all about. The history of the builidings, the sounds and movement of people (can get a bit crazy) and all the eating options make it a fantastic 4 to 6 hour visit. Afterwards you will really feel you have been in Mexico.
