Description

Explore the Mexico City of Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera on a tour of Coyoacán neighborhood. Hear about Frida Kahlo’s life and art at La Casa Azul (the Blue House) and view pre-Columbian art collected by her husband, the mural artist Diego Rivera. Follow cobblestone streets to tucked-away plazas, visit ancient churches and stop to shop at craft fairs and street bazaars.

Your tour begins with pickup from your Mexico City hotel and a walk around Coyoacán, one of the oldest neighborhoods in Mexico City. Take a stroll along cobblestone streets to small plazas as you learn about the history of this area from your guide.

Stop to admire Coyoacán’s 16th-century mansions and visit the church of San Juan Bautista, one of the oldest churches in Mexico City. Step inside to see impressive paintings and chapels, then continue your exploration of this vibrant neighborhood with a stop at a local crafts fair, where you can sample a cup of traditional coffee (own expense).

Next, visit the Frida Kahlo Museum, known as La Casa Azul (‘the Blue House’), and learn about the turbulent and colorful life of this world-famous artist. See where Frida Kahlo lived with her husband, the muralist Diego Rivera, and examples of her iconic artwork.

Your tour then takes you to the city of Xochimilco where you'll board a colorful trajinera and have fun sailing through the canals. These gondola-like boats are popular with locals and tourists alike, so you are guaranteed to have a great time.
Your tour ends with return transfer to your Mexico City hotel.
