It's a great place to visit. Nice to see the Temple of the Sun and Moon. The temple of the feathered snake. It will take you about 3h to visit all of them. We recommend a nice restaurant on the way back "El Ranchito". There is a cute back yard and the food is really good and simple. Nice service... More

The third largest pyramid according to Wikipedia, this massive structure is the largest in Mesoamerica and worth every penny! Go early and bring a coat as the temperature can be cold early on. Head directly to the top of the Pyramid of the Sun to see the Sun come up with the hot air balloons floating towards you!

If you're a lover of history and architecture, or just plain vacationing, this is a must stop to go to!! My girls and I had a blast visiting the pyramids. We took a million photos, selfies, and recorded so many videos there. It's a place where one can be in awe and feel alive.

This is a great day to spend out of the city. We took an Uber and it was around 1 hour drive and 700 pesos. After climbing the pyramid of the sun we had lunch in a little restaurant behind the pyramid of the moon. Good food and amazing views. We got the local bus back into town. Very cheap.... More

The pyramid of the Sun and the nearby pyramid of the Moon are intriguing glimpses into the past. They are also a lot of fun to hike to the top of! There is always something more to learn and there are great restaurants in the vicinity as well. I hope to return again next year!

You will feel the presence of the ancient civilization that existed there and wonder about the motivation for building such structures. Fascinating!

Let me just be the next reviewer to say when in Mexico City a visit to the Pyramid of the Sun and well as all of the other structures is an absolute must. As part of a family )wife and 17 year old son) who loves to visit ruins/pyramids you won't be disappointed here. The site is very well maintained... More

See the pyramids. They are amazing!! There is so much history and so much beauty. Do not miss this adventure. We planned the entire day around the pyramids. Don't rush it with the Basilica. (We went to the Basilica first thing the next morning). We climbed the Pyramid of the Sun first. My choice. I was afraid if I didn't... More

If you visit Mexico you should visit this jewel of history. Just imagine how was the construction of them.

It's quite a climb to the top with some pretty steep sides, but well worth it. The view and the energy up there is quite amazing.
