You can not miss a visit to the Teotihuacan ruins, those are located very close to Mexico City and Texcoco. You will see the Piramide of the Sun, and the Piramide of the Moon, both of them are impressionant display of the Aztec ability in architecture. From the top of them you can see a panoramic view of the town of Teotihuacan and the valley. You will also find many souvenirs, with a lot of choices . You can find anything you can ever imagine there. Very nice Mexican items !!
Don´t miss out on the old Indian site Teotihuacán, outside of Mexico City. (You can go by bus.) It´s a fascinating place with (mainly) symmetric temples and buildings. You have a great view over the area, and the air is a lot better than in Mexico City!
Teotihuacan is the pyramids that were built about a half hour bus-ride from Mexico City. They are amazing structures to see, and you can climb to the top of them for great views of the landscape. As you walk around, there are vendors that sell inexpensive trinkets that make cool souvenirs.
Visit the ancient capital of Teotihuacán
Very well preserved/reconstructed sites along a 2 kms long avenue (means lots of walking).
The Pyramid of the Sun is the third highest pyramid in the world, after Cholula (Puebla, Mexico) and Keops (Egypt).
We let our hotel arrange or tour! And it worked out very well! Excellent guide and terrific travel partners! Later on in Oaxaca...not the same experience!
One of the site you don't want to miss even if you can't climb to the top. Just to look at these massive work of arts is worth your time.
The largest pyramid in the world is here. Very old ruins show the greatness on the people that lived in the country before the spanish came.
Visit the beautiful Pyramids of the Sun about 40 minutes outside Mexico City.
Go early in the morning -- before it officially opens -- for the best photos without crowds.
The best example of Aztec architecture and culture. It's just incredibly awesome that some of the Aztec heritage are this well preserved in Mexico.
A view form the top of the Pyramid of the Sun. In certain days of the year, you can find people in the summit of the pyramid, wearing white dresses, looking to catch the 'power' of the pyramid.
Visit Teotihuacan, The city that mysteriously became desolate somewhere in the 500-600.
In the pic, the Temple of the SUN...
