DAY 1 Bellas Artes Palace
Bellas Artes Palace

You won’t want to miss Mexico City’s imposing Palacio de Bellas Artes (Bellas Artes Palace), located about seven blocks  west of the Zocalo, adjacent to the Alameda Central Park. Immediately you will see why this grandiose domed Palace is among the most important of the city’s sites and attractions.

DAY 2 Templo Mayor, Mexico’s Great Aztec Empire
Templo Mayor, Mexico’s Great Aztec Empire

Under the hustle and bustle of modern Mexico City lie the ruins of the pre-Hispanic Aztec capital, previously known as Tenochtitlan. At the center of this ancient empire was the Templo Mayor, the most important religious area for the Aztecs. Archaeologists discovered it under the Mexico City Metropolitan Cathedral, located in the Zocalo, in the mid-1900s and excavated in the 1970s. When the Spanish Conquerors arrived, they destroyed the temples and built over the Aztec empire and the great temple of Tenochtitlan. Still an active site, archeologists are continuously unearthing artifacts and structures.
