Mexico is one of the most culturally rich countries you are going to find and understanding that culture cannot be done without first understanding its beginnings. At the National Anthropology Museum in Mexico City you will be able to learn about the first civilizations that lived in this territory.
To complement this experience, you will be able to see the main sites and landmarks of Mexico City in a walking tour through downtown.
Our tour begins in the Anthropology Museum, where you’ll get to admire some of the pieces amongst the vast collection of pre-hispanic art inside of the museum. Our guide will explain pieces like the Sun Stone, also called the Aztec calendar; the Coatlicue, and several other pieces that reflected the thought, lifestyle and religion of the different civilizations developed inside ancient Mexico.
Later, we’ll head to the Historic Center of our city, where the Aztec empire was once seated. Our guide will give you a brief explanation of the Great Tenochtitlan, and the traces that remain as evidence of its existence.
You’ll walk through some of the busiest streets of the Historic Center and the outside of some of its emblematic buildings, such as the Metropolitan Cathedral, National Palace and the Palace of Fine Arts.
In between the Museum and the Historic Center, you’ll enjoy a panoramic ride across Reforma Avenue; where you’ll see several monuments that have shaped and given identity to our city, like the Angel of Independence, Diana the Huntress, and more recently, the creation of the Bicentennial Column.
