The first time you walk into Mexico City’s central square, The Zocalo, you begin to understand the enormous scale of this capital city that over 20 million people call home. In the centre of the plaza, a flag the size of a swimming pool billows in the breeze, watched by a ring of imposing colonial buildings. This was once the ceremonial centre of the Aztec city of Tenochtitlan – a poignant reminder of Mexico’s tapestried past. From here, you are within walking distance of an eclectic mix of contemporary galleries, museums filled with classical art and ancient artefacts and some of the best restaurants in town. There is no end to the cultural and culinary adventures we can arrange in this exciting city.
