Days 1-3 - Visit to the huge pre-Aztec pyramids
Arriving in Mexico City on Friday allows you to visit the city at the weekend, when it is quieter and there are more cultural activities and markets. Stay until Monday, visiting the huge Aztec pyramids at Teotihuacan and the Saturday market. You may wish to join local people and families for a walk in Chapultepec park or cycling on Avenida Reforma which is closed to traffic on Sundays, take a long lunch in one of the stylish restaurants with superb fusion cuisine and there are also excellent hotels with spa for you to enjoy. Stay longer to travel out of town and visit Puebla and/or Taxco and Cuernavaca.
Days 4-7 - Visit major colonial and historic cities
Drive to Queretaro, stopping to explore and onto San Miguel de Allende staying for four nights, which allows three full days to visit major colonial and historic cities of Mexico's Independence Revolutions. Morning tour of San Miguel de Allende's history and art galleries and then explore on your own: the Allende museum is very interesting, the main square where the cathedral is all lit up at night and the numerous little cafes where hot chocolate is a major delicacy. Take a full day tour out of town to visit the colonial city of Guanajuato and Dolores Hidalgo. Optional excursion to Atotonilco Sanctuary.
