You will be picked up at your hotel in Mexico City for a 4-hour half day tour around Mexico City.

Setting off, you will pass by the World Trade Center, the Siqueiros Cultural Polyfo-rum, a cultural, political and social facility where artworks of David Alfaro Siqueiros are exposed. Then, discover at Plaza de Toros, the Mexico bullring, which is the largest bullring in the world and the Theater of the Insurgentes with its mosaic mural featuring Cantinflas, painted by Diego Rivera. You will explore the University City with its famous library decorated throughout with the mosaic murals of Juan O'Gorman, the Olympic Stadium and the residential area of Pedregal de San Angel, near to the University City, built on lava fields. These lava fields were formed from the eruption of the Xitle volcano.

Go to Xochimilco, one of the 16 boroughs within Mexican Federal District, classified as a World Heritage Site. Arriving at the peaceful waters of the Xochimilco Canals, one of the last traces of the Aztec Era, you will enjoy a relaxing, scenic journey through these ancient waters on a traditional punt or pre-Hispanic boat called 'trajinera'.

Next, you will discover the impressive colonial district of Coyoacan, one of the first colonial settlements, which still preserves its style as well as its atmosphere. For all of this and more Coyoacan has been the location of choice and inspiration for various local artists and foreigners. Coyoacan is considered the cultural heart of Mexico City.
