“No visit to Mexico City is complete without it”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2012

Mexico city is an extraordinary place - it has so much to see. The Centro Historico combines old colonial cathedral, churches and palaces with excavated Aztec temples.

“Walk!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

Walk the whole Historic Center. It is safe and fun. The Zocalo is where so much "people" stuff happens. Be sure to walk from the Zocalo up the pedestrian walk to the Bellas Artes. And all in between.
