Sightseeing in Mexico City

- Downtown Mexico City

Mexico City’s Centro Histórico is a treasure trove of colonial buildings, museums and Aztec sites located at the very center of this great metropolis. Cobblestone streets brimming with busy merchants and cultural centers fan out from the enormous main square – the ever- impressive Zócalo. Linking the Zócalo with the downtown Alameda park, the lively shopping thoroughfare of Avenida Madero spills out onto the magnificent white-marble concert hall of Palacio de Bellas Artes.

- Polanco

At the entrance to Chapultepec park, marking the western end of Mexico’s grandest boulevard, Paseo de Reforma, lies the exclusive neighborhood of Polanco. Affluent residents and embassy workers fill the chic shops and elegant restaurants of this traditional bastion of Mexican high society. The broad Avenida Presidente Masaryk runs through its center, lined with elegant boutiques, many with ornately carved-stone doorways reflecting the area’s 1930s California-style architecture. Many luxury hotels in Polanco look out over the park and are located near the awe-inspiring National Museum of Anthropology.
