Full description
Your tour begins in the Anthropology Museum, admire some of the pieces amongst the vast collection of pre-hispanic art inside of the museum.

Your guide will explain pieces like the Sun Stone, also called the Aztec calendar; the Coatlicue, and several other pieces that reflected the thought, lifestyle and religion of the different civilizations developed inside the ancient Mexico. Later, head to the Historic Center of the city, where the Aztec empire was once seated. Your guide will give you a brief explanation on the Great Tenochtitlan, and the traces that remain as evidence of its existence.

Walk through some of the busiest streets of the Historic Center and the outside of some of its emblematic buildings, such as the Metropolitan Cathedral, National Palace and the Palace of Fine Arts.

In between the Museum and the Historic Center, enjoy a panoramic ride across Reforma Avenue; where you’ll see several monuments that have shaped and given identity to our city, like the Angel of Independence, Diana the Huntress, and more recently, the creation of the Bicentennial Column.
