Explore different eras of Mexico City, on this guided tour of the most historical places in the Chapultepec Forest: the Chapultepec Castle and the Nationalquartz Anthropological Museum.

Itinerary

Our first stop will be the Chapultepec Castle, currently the National History Museum, and one which was the scene of numerous battles during the American invasion, military college, and Presidential residence until 1944. It was also the imperial palace of Maximiliano and Carlota: the former was an Austrian duke in the house of Hapsburg the latter a Belgian princess, who were implemented as Emperor and Empress of Mexico during a six-year French intervention known as the "Second Mexican Empire".

We'll see sculptures of historical figures such as Cuauhtémoc (the last Aztec Emperor) and Hernán Cortés (one of the first Spanish colonisers), and discover interesting stories about the conquest, independence and revolution. We'll breathe the French air of 19th century Mexico as we pass through halls decorated in a traditional European style and get to know the life of Emperor Maximiliano.

Having enjoyed some of the best views of Mexico City from the balconies of the Chapultepec Castle then you will have free time for perhaps a refreshing drink.

Then our tour continues, taking you back to the very origins of Mesoamerica, on a guided tour of the National Anthropological Museum, which holds the largest collection of precolombian art in the world. We'll follow the footsteps of prehispanic societies, discovering reconstructions of the tombs and temples of the old Aztec and Mayan civilisations, as well as invaluable archaeological pieces from the Zapotec, Toltec, Teotihuacan and Mexica civilisations.
