4 1/2 days in Mexico City.

Hola!

My wife and I are travelling to M.C. in August, staying in Zona Rosa. This is the itinerary I've fleshed out so far, any suggestions/advice would be greatly appreciated! With regards to food/drinks, we like to just walk around and "discover" places, but if anyone has a "must see", then I'll definately make a note of it.

THURSDAY (Arrive at airport after 7 hour flight at 2:30 P.M.)

• Walk around nearby hotel trying food/drinks, sticking to Insurgentes.

FRIDAY

• 1030 A.M. - Food walking tour lasting 3 hours, ending near Chapultepec Park.

• Chapultepec Castle

• Museum of Anthropology

• Walk around Chapultepec Park

• 8 P.M. Lucha Libre, Arena Mexico.

SATURDAY

• Walk around Parque Alameda Central

• 10 A.M. Palace of the Fine Arts

• Coyoacan

SUNDAY

• 11 A.M. Central Historical Walking Tour lasting 3 hours

• National Museum of Art

• Tower of Latin America

Plaza Garibaldi for mariachi

• Walk around Zocalo

MONDAY

• Organised day trip to Teotihuacan Pyramids, back by 6:30 P.M.

I'm not sure if swapping the activities on Saturday/Sunday would have any benefits?

Thanks. .PLEASE write about the experience when you're done. Culinary Backstreets has tours in several cities and the one in Istanbul is top-notch, so would like to make a comparison.
