As the heart of culture and politics in Mexico, Mexico City is the perfect destination for your next getaway. Would you like to know the places you should visit? Keep reading and discover or recommended museums, monuments, and different points of interest in this unique city. The best thing about this is you will be able to visit them in three days! Let’s start the trip!
DAY 1. DIVE INTO THE HISTORY AND ART OF THE CITY
Let’s start this visit with the National Museum of Anthropology and History. This museum has the biggest pre-Colombian art collection in the world. It also exhibits different art pieces and sculptures from different important cultures that once lived in Mexico.
For our second stop, we will be visiting Casa Azul (the blue house), also known as the house/museum of Frida Kahlo. The walls of this beautiful blue house transport you into the past and allow you to live in the environment where most of the famous paintings of this well-known artist were made.
Moving to the Art Nouveau era in Mexico, we arrive at the greatest art house in the country, Palacio de Bellas Artes.
In the historical downtown of the city, this beautiful and breathtaking structure hosts different cultural events throughout the year. Here you will be able to witness some beautiful ballet, and orchestra concerts, or you will be able to visit the different art expositions that they offer. You will also be able to admire some of the greatest murals of the famous painter Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo’s husband.
Some other museums that we would recommend are the Museum of Memory and Tolerance, the Tamayo Museum of contemporary art, the Jumex Museum, the Sumaya Museum, the Museum of Templo Major (the great temple), the National Museum of Art, the National Museum of Revolution, and the Postal Museum.
DAY 2. DIFFERENT FLAVORS: THE BEST FOOD IN THE CITY
A trip to Mexico City will not be complete if you are not trying the food.
Start your day with a delicious breakfast! Some of our favorite cafes and restaurants to get breakfast and lunch are Mandolina, Madre Café, Breakfast, Freims, Bou, and Tres Abejas.
For lunch you should definitely consider these places: Contamar, if you want seafood; Marcello, if you’re craving Italian food; Rosetta, for delicious modern Mexican food; and La Vie en Rose, for great French food. You will not regret any of these places!
To finish off your day in the best way, he would highly recommend you make a reservation for a rooftop restaurant where you can see the city from above. Mexico City is wonderful at night!
Our biggest rooftop recommendations would be Bellini, Lago Algo, Terraza Cha Cha Cha, Ling Ling, and Miralto. All of these places have a unique food offer with a view that you will never forget!
DAY 3. A CITY FILLED WITH MONUMENTS
To end your trip with a gold medal, we would love to take you on a tour of the Zocalo, Mexico City’s historical downtown.
Since this is a very visited place for both locals and tourists we would recommend you to get there early in the morning.
Here you will be able to find the National Palace, another beautiful building with murals By Diego Rivera, the Metropolitan Cathedral, the first cathedral built in America, and Madero Street, a street where you will be able to find different jewelry shops and restaurants.
Just a few blocks away, you will get to the avenue Paseo de la Reforma, which will connect you to the Revolution Monument, the Independence Angel, the fountain of Diana the Huntress, and the Trail of Light among other important monuments.
After walking along this avenue you will have arrived at the lungs of this beautiful city, the Chapultepec woods.
On the highest part of the woods, you will find the famous castle of Chapultepec, a historical fortress with the National Museum of History inside, and of course, a beautiful view of the city.
