Set out for an exploration of southern Mexico City to observe historic architecture and murals by celebrated Mexican artists. Visit the house of famous Frida Kahlo, and then immerse yourself in pre-Hispanic Xochimilco to learn about the region’s ancient lake and the still-functioning Aztec canal system aboard a trajinera boat.

Start the journey in Coyoacan, the capital's charming art district. Continue on to University City to tour the campus of the National University of Mexico. Here, take in impressive murals depicting Mexican history by celebrated artist Diego Rivera.

Make your way out to Xochimilco—this Nahuatl name means “Place of Flowers”—to visit the remnants of an ancient lake and the pre-Hispanic settlements on its banks. Discover the elaborate Aztec canal system that once connected pre-Columbian towns and villages, and check out floating gardens called chinampas. Aboard a brightly painted, gondola-like trajinera, drift along through this UNESCO World Heritage Site.

End your tour immersed in the colorful world of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo. Her namesake museum is housed in the bright blue house where she was born and spent the later years of her life. Explore the exhibits within the Casa Azul, from pre-Hispanic artifacts and Mexican folk art to jewelry and clothing from the collection of the artist herself. Admire works by Kahlo and contemporary artists as you learn about the controversial painter's fascinating life and international influence.
