What To Expect

The Plaza de la Constitución, informally known as El Zócalo, is the main square of Mexico City. Together with the surrounding streets, it occupies an almost rectangular surface of approximately 46 800 m² (195 m x 240 m). It was named in honor of the Constitution of Cadiz promulgated in 1812. This is the second largest square in the world and the first among the Spanish-speaking countries. 1

The Zócalo is located in the heart of the area known as the Historic Center of Mexico City, in the Cuauhtémoc delegation. Its location was chosen by the Spanish conquistadors to be established in an area close to what was previously the political and religious center of Mexico-Tenochtitlan, capital of the Mexicas.

National Palace
Its construction began in 1522, as the second private residence of Hernán Cortés, on top of a part of the huey tlatoani Moctezuma Xocoyotzin palace. Then it was acquired by the crown and intended as the seat of the Viceroys of New Spain, and most of the colonial institutions. During that period it suffered a great fire and was semidemolido in 1692, later it was reconstructed by the viceroyal authorities. Once the Independence of Mexico was consummated, it was the seat of the executive, legislative and judicial powers of the different republican and monarchical regimes of the country during most of the 19th century; it was even the personal residence of all the rulers between 1822 and 1884; from then on, it remained as presidential office until 1968, partially recovering this function in 2012, and completely in 2018.

Carlos was a terrific tour guide. He was knowledgeable, personable and a great ambassador for Mexico City. He was thorough in showing us the major parts of the Anthropology Museum, which was a highlight of the day. I was with my brother (which is not offered as a selection under "who was with you" - if you're with family, it assumes you're with children - weird).
Great day

Trip to Mexico city
Our guide, Julio was very nice and knew a lot about the city.

The day started at 9 am with The Museum of Anthropologie. Upon our request, Julio took us to the castle of Chapultepec. We had lunch at a local restaurant and enjoyed some local food.

We then went to the Zocalo and visited the National museum of arts, post office and the main cathedral.

The last stop was the archeological ruins. The day ended around 4 pm.
We walked close to 10 miles!

Julio was excellent and made this very fun and informative for our entire family with kids and grandparents.
