      About this Bogota tour

      Exploring Bogota can be done in many ways, from cycling to riding around in a 4x4. However, with so much to see, a walking tour is a good way to experience the metro area’s charm and colonial architecture, which is noticeable in the buildings’ clay roofs and age-old wooden balconies.

      With your comfortable footwear laced up, bottle of water chilled and camera charged, stroll to Botero Museum. One of the most important Latin American museums, it exhibits art from talents like Fernando Botero and Picasso. It’s not surprising that it welcomes over 1,000 people through its doors daily, considering the ever-expanding collection is spread over three floors.

      Step outside and witness more art on the city’s walls, many of which have been given a splash of color with impressive graffiti and murals. Your journey will continue to the Gold Museum, and here you can inspect over 55,000 pieces of gold sourced from pre-Hispanic cultures. Even the goldsmiths of today can’t contend with the quality of the pieces housed inside this local attraction.

      If you’re in need of some retail therapy, Paloquemao Market has you covered. An authentic experience is guaranteed at this market, where you can buy fruits, vegetables and flowers for a good deal.

      Enjoy a delicious local lunch along the way and conclude the day by watching the sun set from Monserrate Sanctuary’s peak via a cable car ride.

      Bogota – a City of Contrasts

      Since the city was founded in 1538, the metropolis has evolved continuously, and when you walk around the graffiti-filled streets you’ll notice French and Spanish influences in the vast majority of its buildings and palaces as European style started to take over as the 19th century approached. For a real feel of the past, focus your attention on La Candelaria, where some of the city’s oldest structures can be found. For entertainment and sports, El Salitre has it all, whereas Avenida Chile is acknowledged as a prominent business sector.
