Aztec tours highlight the archeological ruins and way of life of a fascinating ancient civilization, and in Mexico City, there are a few opportunities to explore the relics of the Aztecs. In 1521, the Aztecs were overtaken by the Spanish conquistadors and the history of Mexico took a dramatic turn. Today, Mexico City is located in the same place as the capital city of the Aztecs, Tenochtitlan. An Aztec tour in Mexico City will bring you to Templo Mayor, the recently excavated ruins of a major temple. Visitors can choose to join a tour group at this museum, or sign up for a larger tour that includes other archaeological sites of interest in Mexico. Entire week vacations can be planned around this interest, so if the history of Mexico fascinates you look into these options that provide much more than an hour-long guided tour of Templo Mayor.
A Mexico City pyramid tour is another popular option. Outside of the capital city is the archaeological site Teotihuacan and its famous pyramids. The Pyramid of the Sun is the third-largest pyramid in the world and an impressive site for visitors. Other highlights on this Mexico City pyramid tour include the Pyramid of the Moon and the Pyramid of the Feathered Serpent, also known as the Temple of Quetzalcoatl.
If your curiosity is piqued by these archaeological sites, you will definitely want to visit the National Anthropology Museum. No Aztec tour in Mexico City is complete without a visit to this impressive museum. A smaller museum is also present at Templo Mayor, where many of the smaller relics recovered during the excavation of the 1970s are on display. Aztec tours will reveal that these ancient people were sophisticated, interested in the arts, and deeply religious.
