Ciudad de Mexico
Ciudad de Mexico is a place of multifaceted offerings. This is a city of serene parks and European-style plazas, teeming street life and bustling markets, boisterous bullrings and civilized cantinas, gleaming office towers and centuries-old monasteries, old-fashioned dance halls and minimalist electronica clubs. Over a hundred museums display pre-Hispanic, colonial and modern art or cover the city’s long history. For culinary travelers, it’s an endless banquet, from soulful taco stalls to world-class restaurants. Music is everywhere: emerging from the opera house, you’re greeted by an organ-grinder. Over 2km high, Mexico City enjoys a springlike climate year-round. And the Chilangos, or "defeños," or "capitalinos," or whatever you name the locals, are a remarkably patient and helpful bunch.
Remember that Mexico City is, and has ever been, the sun in the Mexican solar system. To truly understand the country, you’ve got to come to grips with El Gran Tenochtitlán.
