Mexico City's Historic Centre is a vibrant place in the heart of the city. It is home to landmarks dating back as far as the Aztecs. Beautiful architecture and many of the city's attractions are in this area.

There are few metropolitan areas in the world where so many sights are condensed in such a condensed space - whereever you look, history breathes. Start your visit at Zócalo.

Do not miss the aztec ruins. Also, go under the street level to see them up close. Walk around the center and see and enjoy the native dancing and costumes.

Prepare to spend at least one full day exploring the downtown area of the city. You will need more than that if you visit the museums! The sidewalks are narrow and crowded, but there are buildings and parks to duck into for a break. There...More
