Day Two of Three

  • 10 am - The Zócalo

The big city square you've seen on TV, in full vibrant color. And there are dozens of ways to take off from there. Below are just some of the most important

  • 11 am - The National Palace

Grandiose as it is, it's also free to come in. The murals by Diego Rivera are the biggest draw, but for architecture and history alone, it's worth spending some time.

  • 12 pm - The Metropolitan Cathedral

The oldest and biggest cathedral in Latin America, this one is worth a good hour or two before lunch.

  • 1 pm - Lunch at the Gran Hotel Ciudad de Mexico

The Gran Hotel Terrace has an excellent terrace buffet with views from about five stories up. Highly competitive, it's in reality one of the best lunch buffets on the market.

  • 3 pm - The Templo Mayor Museum & Archaeological Site

While Anthropology can give you a pretty good perspective on the entire country, the Templo museum and site are focused just on what was here.
