Featured Mexico City attractions
Not sure what to do in Mexico City, besides eat and drink? Here are a few recommendations, provided by Skyscanner.
Callejón Regina (Calle Regina Centro Histórico)
The top-rated visitor attraction in Mexico City, according to Skyscanner, is Callejón Regina.
"I have seen the transformation of this alley since it was a busy street until its closure to become a space dedicated to the pedestrian," wrote visitor Rebeca. "Undoubtedly, it is one of my favorite areas of the historic center."
Kiosco Morisco de Santa María la Ribera (Calle Salvador Díaz Mirón S/N)
Kiosco Morisco de Santa María la Ribera, an elaborately designed steel kiosk, is another popular destination.
"The kiosk of Santa María la Ribera is a benchmark of ancient Mexico," wrote visitor Maru. "On weekends, it is always full of children and families around, and travelers taking pictures. Do not lose detail of its dome and the eagle that gives the final touch at the tip."
The Palacio de Bellas Artes (Av. Juárez)
Lastly, spend some time at The Palacio de Bellas Artes.
Inaugurated in 1934, the Palacio de Bellas Artes in Mexico City is a major cultural center where you can attend poetry readings, operas, dance recitals, art shows and more. From outside, marvel at the building's white-marble beauty and symbolic sculptures that include an eagle eating a snake. Inside, find spectacular murals by renowned artists, such as Rufino Tamayo and Diego Rivera.
"The place in itself is a beauty," wrote visitor Analu. "The lobby feels like you’ve stepped back in time. The museum is well worth the visit."
