Nice plaza to just stroll, chill and watch people passing by. Reminiscent of plazas in Europe. Instagram-worthy!

This is a huge square which attracts tourists, locals, protests. It feels like the centre of town and is an important area for old remains and the huge cathedral

This massive public square offers great viewing of so many adjacent landmarks. Busy and vibrant, a great gathering spot. Not over run with people, that you would experience in Europe.

Beautiful historic part of the city, definitely worth checking out! The facade of the cathedral is mesmerizing with all of the statues and you can catch some traditional dance troupe and good people watching as well.

We were lucky to be in Mexico City the days before Independence Day. The square was a hive of activity as preparations were being made for the celebration. The ruins of Templo Mayor are right next to the square. A major shopping area (Madero Avenue)...More

Es seguro caminar de Bellas Artes al zócalo a las 10pm. Habrá mucha gente y la calle peatonal está iluminada. Recomiendo el bajo perfil (no joyas ostentosas) y mantenerse alerta. Disfruta tu estancia.

2 hours should be plenty of time to walk around and visit the church & possibly the museums. This is definitely not a whole day thing, after 2-3 hours you would want to get some rest or go have something to eat.
