Day 2. MEXICO CITY: An excursion to the pyramids of Teotihuacan with a visit to the Guadalupe Shrine (duration – 8 hours)


A visit to the Guadalupe Shrine, the most revered saint of the people of Mexico. According to legend, the temple was built on the place where the Immaculate Virgin Mary appeared in 1531 to Juan Diego. In a sign that She takes the people of Mexico under her protection, the Virgin Mary took the form of a dark-skinned Holy Guadeloupe. Her image miraculously appeared on the cloak of Juan made of fibers of agave. Currently, this miraculous icon is keeping in the new church, which is a magnificent example of modern architecture accommodating 10,000 of people at the same time.

Next, the trip to the wonderful city of Teotihuacan is proposed to the attention of tourists. The ancient city is located 60 km from the capital. It received its name from admiring Aztecs, who came to this region in a few centuries after the last resident of this city left it. Even in the ruins of the city the Aztecs felt something divine, giving to the city the name Teotihuacan, which translated from Nahuatl means "place where the gods are born". And they were right: all the buildings of the city, pledged at the beginning of our era, were in full agreement with the position of star luminaries in the sky! In times of greatest prosperity the city had more than two hundred thousand inhabitants, and there was not the city not in the Old or the New World even in the Middle Ages equal to it in area and the number of residents.

The majestic Pyramid of the Sun, the Pyramid of the Moon, the Pyramid of the Feathered Serpent – Quetzalcoatl, towering over all the surviving buildings of the city, located at the Paths of the Dead, are keeping their secrets, yielding clues of mystery that surrounds this forgotten by people city. You will visit the Palace of Quetzalpapalotl – a mythical bird and butterfly; you’ll see the Palace of the Jaguar and visit the residences of the former inhabitants of Teotihuacan.

Day 3. MEXICO CITY: City-tour with a visit to the Anthropological Museum (duration – 6 hours)


A tour will begin on the city's main square – Zocalo (Constitution Square), where you will visit the Catholic Cathedral, which is a fine example of Baroque and Classicism, and the Presidential Palace, where you will see the murals (kind of wall painting) of the famous Mexican artist Diego Rivera, in which he displayed the history of Mexico from the Aztecs to the twentieth century.

Next, you will pass by one of the residential areas of Mexico City – Polanco, you’ll familiarize yourself with its sunny streets, lively squares, shady parks, multi-jet fountains, monuments and sculptural installations, with its hospitable and cheerful people.

The National Museum of Anthropology in Mexico City is known worldwide as the largest museum of Latin America, which represents unique pieces of the mysterious civilizations of Mesoamerica that had disappeared by unknown reasons. These are the famous Aztec stone calendar, multi-ton stone heads with Negroid features, multicolored frescoes of Teotihuacan with flowers, birds and butterflies. Priceless artifacts of the Maya’s department are keeping a great secret of the unknown, unsolved, making us again and again to ask ourselves the questions: "Who are we? Where are we from?"

Day 4. MEXICO CITY: An excursion to Taxco and Cuernavaca (duration – 12 hours)


Mexico is the most important producer of silver. The first mines were built near Taxco, which is considered the silver capital of the country. Each year Taxco, a small town with well-preserved colonial architecture, has more than 500 thousand tourists from all over the world. Location city is very picturesque. White houses with red-tiled roof with black wrought-iron grilles climb up the slopes of the mountains. This town was expecting a sad fate of oblivion as stocks of silver in the local mines almost dried up. But a miracle was happened. An American William Spratling came to Taxco, he was a brilliant jeweler who felt in love with this city and stayed there forever. The city has received a second life. A silver jewelry by makers of William Spratling’s school consistently wins prizes at international exhibitions of silver.

Over 3,500 stores that specialize in selling of silver jewelry are located in Taxco. In winter the stores sell about a ton of silver jewelry every week.

There is the church of Santa Prisca in the central square of the town. It is a miracle created by human hands, a gem of baroque architecture. The domes of the church, built of the pink stone, towering over Taxco contrast with the bright blue sky of Mexico. The church is under the protection of UNESCO.

On the way to Taxco we’ll visit the "city of eternal spring" – Cuernavaca, which from the old times had excellent reputation among all the rulers of both pre-Hispanic and colonial periods because of the surprisingly favorable microclimate. Here summer and winter residences of the rulers have been built up. And nowadays the "cottages" for city-dwellers seeking a weekend off noisy and polluted capital are built in Cuernavaca.

We will also see the monastery, built in the sixteenth century, by Franciscan friars. It was built to promote the spread of the Catholic faith. Its architectural design is different of that of buildings of its kind in Europe. The monastery is under the protection of UNESCO.

Another interesting construction is the summer Palace of Hernan Cortes, the Spanish conqueror who led the conquest. The residence was built by him for Indian concubine Marina-Malinche, who played a prominent role in the defeat of the powerful and formidable Aztec empire.
