Top places to go in Mexico City

A handy guide to places to visit in the main Mexican city

There is a lot to do in Mexico City, which makes someone look confused when they are going to set up the itinerary of the trip days, so I leave here what my perfect day would be like, visiting the best places in the city.

It would start very early walking along the Reforma, the long and famous avenue downtown. La can be found in the charming castle of Chapultepec, one of the main tourist sights. The castle is immense, has a beautiful garden and provides a good view of the city.

Straight ahead you come across the Tamoyos Museum, which has a great coffee shop, and the Museum of Modern Art, which can not be missed. Nearby is also located the Hotel Downtown, quoted on my list of places to stay.

Another morning tour option is the Teotihuacan Temple of the Sun, which is housed in a complex of historic pyramids, one of which is the third largest in the world. The place is usually warmer than the rest of Mexico City so it’s important to always be well prepared.

The afternoon starts with a good lunch at the Loma Linda restaurant, a large steakhouse opposite the beautiful Soumaya Museum. The place is known for its contemporary architecture.

And speaking contemporaneously, next to the Soumaya is the Jumex, a museum of contemporary rotating art. The two museums, one next to the other, form one of the most beautiful blocks of Mexico City.

Now, if you are a fan of photography and architecture you can also do a tour of the National Cineteca and Torre Palmas 55. Both places are incredible.

And if what you love is history, besides doing the tours already mentioned, nothing better than a night in the historic center, where you can explore landmarks of the city such as the Frida Kahlo Museum, Zócalo, and the wonderful Opera House.

The nightlife of the city is really very attractive, there are good ballads and bars for those who do not give up closing the script with a touch, but my night would end more calm, in some rooftop in Polanco or There Rome. Or probably in one of the restaurants already mentioned in the previous post, where I point out the best restaurants, in my opinion, of the city.
