Mexico City Vacations: Ancient to Modern
Mexico City dates back to the Aztec empire of Tenochtitlan. In the 16th century, Spanish conquerors took over the city. Today, the Renaissance, baroque, and neoclassical Metropolitan Cathedral stands on the ruins of an Aztec empire. To see more Aztec ruins, head south to Teotihuacan, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The city is known for its museums, including the Museo Nacional de Antropología, the Palacio de Bellas Arts, and the Frida Kahlo Museum. With so many exotic things to see, a Liberty Travel vacation package to Mexico City can show you where to begin.
