The best sightseeing in Mexico City is downtown where you will find the National Palace, which is the seat of the government. You will also find the Cathedral and many other colonial buildings, which were built around the 1700s and the 1800s. It is a beautiful place to go.
The Theater of Fine Arts is also in Mexico City, which is a beautiful building from the turn of the 20th century. You can also go to the area around Polanco, which is where we live, and there you will find the main park of Mexico City called Chapultepec Park. There are also a number of museums here such as the Anthropology Museum. The Anthropology Museum is a world-class museum with very nice architecture. It has objects from ancient Mexican civilizations. Many people don´t realize that Mexico City has more museums than any other city in the world (we go back and forth with Paris for top spot). You will also find very interesting modern art in this area of Mexico.
The other areas of Mexico City that are quite nice to visit are San Angel, which is an older part of the city where they have cobblestone roads. They have bazaar on Saturdays that is very colorful and animated. You can also go to Coyoacan, which is another old part of the city where you will find very nice churches and old cobblestone roads. Don´t miss a boat ride through Xochimilco, a UNESCO World Heritage site famous for its system of canals and hanging gardens.
There are many, many wonderful places to visit in the country – from colonial towns to big cities to beaches to architectural ruins. Something for everyone, without a doubt!
