The ancient capital of the Aztec Empire and the capital city of modern Mexico sits at an altitude of 6,600ft above sea level in an old lake basin surrounded by volcanic mountains. Home to over 20-plus million people, this is one of the world's mega-cities, but in spite of the urban sprawl, it contains pockets of great beauty and historical interest, in recognition of which it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A hotchpotch of different cultures means Mexico City is a wonderfully eclectic mix of architectural styles and buildings, all sitting side by side. Explore the city's colourful markets and get
your dose of culture as you nose you way around the scattering of top-notch museums and art galleries. Mexico City holidays can be extended by venturing to UNESCO World Heritage cities of Queretaro, San Miguel Allende, Guanajuato and Morelia... all well worth a trip in their own right.
