Experience the largest city in the world and its immense amount of culture, history and magic. Mexico City brings together the cosmopolitan 21st century with its colonial past, and even offers glimpses into the indigenous glory of the Aztec empire in its identity. See this balanced combination of present and past with a full city tour of this metropolis, followed by a visit to its world-renowned Anthropology Museum and the galleries of archaeological gems left behind by the ancestors.
Or step into the 19th century's moment of royal splendor at Chapultepec Castle, the only true castle in North America and the place where Emperor Maximillian oversaw the Europeanization of Mexico City's arts and cultures from atop this majestic hill. For those interested in the spiritual aspect of Mexican culture, a stop at the Basilica de Guadalupe is obligatory to pay homage to the most revered mother icon in Mexico, the Virgin of Guadalupe, who represents a conglomeration of indigenous and Christian worldviews.
Of course, there's plenty of fun and games, with wrestling and food excursions inside the city. Or take it easy at Xochimilco and its gondola-style vessels, or visit the 'blue house' that belonged to beloved artist Frida Kahlo. And if you're hoping to step out and see more of real Mexico, make sure to take excursions outside of the city to nearby places such as Cholula, Puebla, Cuernavaca, Taxco and Teotihuacan, home of the grandiose Pyramid of the Sun.
Whatever you decide to see and do, Mexico City has everything and anything you're looking for!
