A Day in Mexico City - Perfect 24 Hours Guide
Sitting at 2,200 meters in the Anáhuac Valley, surrounded by two snow-covered volcanic mountains, Mexico City is one of the biggest cities in Northern America. The capital and the largest city of Mexico, Mexico City was once the cultural and political centre of the Aztec empire. Today, the city has reinvented itself into a global metropolis after a series of slandering occurrences. Though the city has preserved its rich heritage, it has also embraced modernity. The many Aztec temples, French-style mansions, colonial palaces, world-class buildings, and shopping districts together form the very character of Mexico City.
With just a day to spend in the city, here is a low-down on how to make the best of 24 hours in Mexico City.
How to spend 1 day in Mexico City?
Start your 1-day Mexico City tour by getting a bird’s eye view of this high-altitude city. Elevate to the 44th floor of the Torre Latinoamericana to get a clear view of the city from above (Insider tip: It is recommended you attend this tower as early as possible in the day as the smog can a damper on the city’s skyline as the day progresses.) After you have soaked in the views of this prosperous city, walk to the Palacio de Bellas Artes, or the Palace of Fine Arts. Featuring the best of the Mexico’s artists, the museum houses some of the most beautiful exhibits the country has seen. Here, the exterior is as attractive as the interior, and you must take a moment to admire its magnificent architecture. Located right next to it is the Alameda Park. This sophisticated and well-polished park has been gracing the city since the late 1500’s. Widening pathways and intricately designed fountains & sculptures will make you wonder if you have been transported to some European city!
While making your way to the heart of the city, make sure to stop at the Casa de los Azulejos, or “House of Tiles.” From the outside, this building is covered in a thousand blue and white tiles that come from the Mexican state of Puebla. After clicking a few pictures here, you can visit the inside for a nice meal. Keep your afternoon reserved for the very best of Méjico. As you walk east from the House of Tiles, you will arrive at the city’s main square – Zocalo, or Plaza de la Constitución. A few of the best of the city’s treasures can be found here including the Palacio Nacional, the Catedral Metropolitana, and the Templo Mayor. After exploring the square, it is time to touch upon some more sights in the city. We suggest you hop on one of the tourist buses that will take you around.
As the night draws closer, make way to the Sanborn’s bar and party till the sun rises!
