The best way to see most of the monuments and things of interest is taking the hop on hop off bus. The best views are from the top

Ensure you get there in the right light. Some mornings are overcast which means you may not get the best backdrop for your photos. You can cross the street to get a great pic. Not to be missed.

It’s a nice place to visit. Just to pass around there by car and better if at night. Paseo de la Reforma is the nicest street in Mexico City and this monument complements it’s beauty.

You can just walk by or drive by in Paseo de la Reforma. It is a very emblematic monument and you can take a picture at it.

The monument itself is nice but not worth seeing in itself, but it is part of Paseo de la Reforma which is a great street for strolling and people watching in the late afternoon, say between 16.00and 19.00

We were able to see this beautiful monument in the daytime and the night, and it's really nice when it is lit up. The base is enormous, with many carvings and plaques. It is in the middle of a traffic circle with no crosswalks, so...More
