You will start driving from Mexico City and cross the highway with the mountains in the backdrop, towards the east side of the city. Admire breathtaking views and beautiful scenery of Popocatepetl and Iztaccihuatl volcanoes and get to the town of Cholula.

Then, you’ll head to see the impressive church of Santa María de Tonantzintla which is of indigenous Baroque style and is an impressive building. It stands out for its interior decorated in gold and the wealth of its elements.

After visiting Tonantzintla, you’ll head to the city of Puebla, located just a 15-minute drive away from Cholula. Puebla is popularly known as the “City of Angels." Here, you can enjoy a delicious lunch (not included). The variety of cuisine is rich in Puebla so you can choose from a simple and traditional “semita“ to an exquisite and laborious “mole Poblano.“

After lunch, you will have a walking tour through the beautiful historic center of this city where you can see the buildings from the sixteenth to the eighteenth century, and visit the Plaza de Armas , the Cathedral and the Church of Santo Domingo. Other points of interest you'll visit include the craft market where you can find beautiful works in the traditional Talavera or delicious sweets such as sweet potatoes prepared in different flavors.
