Built on the site of the famed Aztec capital of Tenochtitlan, Mexico City could easily seem overwhelming by its size and sheer diversity. Our fabulous city guide will take you to some of its many treasures. At the Anthropology Museum in Chapultepec Park stands one of the singularly most impressive collections of archaeological finds in the world from the Olmec, Toltec, Aztec and Mayan cultures. Climb the pre-Aztec pyramids of Teotihuacan just outside the city and float along the ancient waterways built by the Aztecs at Xochimilco. Art lovers can discover the works of Mexico’s most volatile and well-known art couple, Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera: at Frida’s pretty blue house in the leafy suburb of Coyoacan, and at the National Palace in the Zocalo square to see Diego’s vibrant depictions of Mexican revolutionary history. Do try a torta from a street café – a local sandwich unlike any other!
