Imagine stepping out of your historic hotel right onto the Zocalo, the square that was the ceremonial center of Tenochtitlan the ancient capital of the Aztec Empire. You can visit the Templo Mayor where Cortez met with Montezuma and men, including Cortez’s men, were sacrificed. You will visit the Museum of Anthropology with its unparalled collection ranging from an Ice Age mammoth kill, through the origins of civilization, the mystical Olmecs, the state level Teotihuacanos, the enigmatic Toltecs, to the Maya and the Aztecs. Mexico City is also the hub for visits to many of the most significant sites such as Teotihuacan and Tula.
