About the neighbourhood
Mexico City's historic center, declared a World Heritage Site in 1991, is chockfull of fascinating museums, Aztec and colonial architectural treasures, busy shopping streets, markets and plazas where you feel the throbbing pulse of this great megalopolis - and all just a few steps away from the apartment. The subway is a few blocks away. So are stops for major public bus lines, incl. the hop-on hop-off Turi-Bus.
