Summary of The Day: Our full day Bogota city tour is the most comprehensive way to see the bests sights and attractions in Bogota while accompanied by an expert guided versed in a wide historical and current knowledge of Colombia.
We'll begin with a visit to the Monserrate Sanctuary, located within the imposing Eastern Hills of the city, at an altitude of 3150 meters above sea level. Ascending to the top of the mountain on a cable car, we will reach the most notorious pilgrimage point of the city and perhaps the most incredible lookout spot of the capital below. This is the best spot to grasp the historical and spatial contextualization of the city.
Once back on the ground we will travel into the past, going directly to the time of the Latin American independence by visiting the house of Colombia’s liberator, La Quinta de Bolívar. Then, back in the present time, we will get ourselves familiar with the student atmosphere within the campus of Universidad de los Andes.
Continuing the tour, we will go down stream following the Eje Ambiental, witnessing the effort this city has made to recover the river that originally gave it life, through one of the most famous urbanistic projects in Latin America, carried out by architect Rogelio Salmona. Following the river San Francisco towards Jimenez Avenue, we will dive into the most impressive collection of indigenous gold pieces in the world at the Gold Museum. At the exit, you will have the chance to shop at the handicrafts market at Parque Santander.
Next, we will enter the historic neighborhood of La Candelaria and wander the picturesque cobbled streets that hold more then 400 years of history. We will visit the Botero Museum, which features works of the eccentric artist who has become an icon of Colombian contemporary art. We will make a stop at Chorro de Quevedo and appreciate the diverse contrasts that the historical center offers in order to understand Colombian history.
After a lunch break at an authentic local restaurant, we will reach Plaza de Bolívar, historical epicenter of Bogotá. The main square is surrounded by the administrative and governmental buildings that have been icons of the historical processes carried out here. We will also have the chance to enter the Prime Cathedral.
Finally we will hop in a car and drive towards the north of the city, having a panoramic sight of the International Centre, La Macarena Neighborhood and National Park. The final destination, will be the cozy neighborhood of Usaquén, which holds in its narrow streets the best weekend flea market in town.
