With the little time we had in Mexico City we decided to spend it in Zocalo. It was a unique experience and felt like we truly got a feel for Mexican history and culture. We explored on our own after an Uber ride from the...More
It's worth a day to walk to the many attractions in the area. I followed a walking tour described in Lonely Planet, and it took me to some fun places (a market and a bar) that I would not have found on my own.
The place condense the history of Mexico and America. Its architecture (buildings and streets) still continues remembering us what their people actively were centuries ago. Zocalo must be visited when coming to Mexico.
Here is where the city meets for everything that is locally and nationally important. it is edged on two sides by a covered walkway WITH ENDLESS SHOPPING. The important cathedral on another side and the massive Placio National Corregidora completeing the encirclement of the massive...More
Definitely you should visit "El Zocalo" for understanding the magnificence of the Mexican history. You should visit the Palacio Nacional and the Cathedral among other possibilities at walking distance.

The beating heart of the city lies within Centro Histórico, the vast expanse of historical buildings and monuments that are a must when exploring Mexico City. Places such as the Museo Biblioteca Palacio Postal, Casa de los Azulejos and Palacio de Bellas Artes are the perfect eye candy for anyone seeking to admire arts and architecture. Don't forget to visit the wide variety of markets and plazas where any
vintage item, handicrafts and jewelry characteristic of each state in Mexico can be found on Sundays. Admire majestic views of the city from the Monumento a la Revolución and Torre Latinoamericana, and round out the experience with restaurants of all cuisines nearby.

2 hours should be plenty of time to walk around and visit the church & possibly the museums.
This is definitely not a whole day thing, after 2-3 hours you would want to get some rest or go have something to eat.
