“Almost chicken skin inducing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2013

Rounding the corner on the Turibus into the Zolcolo and being surrounded by such incredible huge buildings with a gigantic Mexican flag is chicken skin inducing.
The Plaza de la Constitucion has been a gathering place since Aztec times and you can feel the long history when there.
Don't miss one of the largest city squares in the world. It's well worth the trip.

“A HISTORY BOOK WITHOUT THE PAGES”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

This is where it all began, from the Aztecs to the Spanish. This was the heart of the Aztec Empire. It's big and full of beautiful colonial sites. Dont forget your camara. Watch you belongings as the crowds are big on the weekend. For the best cakes head to Ideal backery not two far, its three floors of , goodies ! Forget Jenny Craig. The area is people friendly where street are cut off for the public. dont forget Bellas Artes.

“Spend At Least 3 Days”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2013

You will walk your feet off and marvel at the architecture, gardens, pedestrian malls and fountains of this area... Many of the public buildings have amazing art inside so walk-in and check them out eg: Palacio de Bellas Art, Palacio de Correos.
