Spend a day with two of the most influential artists in Mexico’s history. Visit places where they worked and lived - and museums where their legendary artwork is on display.
Then we will travel south of the city to the charming 16th century colonial town of Coyoacan, a southwestern suburb of Mexico City, also Frida’s home-town where she was born in 1907 and where she returned to live the last 13 years of her life in her “Blue House.”
Coyoacan remains a delightful place, away from the urban sprawl of Mexico City. Located close to the University City, Coyoacan features narrow colonial-era streets, cafes and a Bohemian atmosphere. Many charming features make this one of the most pleasant walking areas in the world, including: Plaza Hidalgo, Coyoacan’s central plaza with its lovely gardens, the magnificent Parish Church of Saint John the Baptist with its incredible paintings that draw walkers and street musicians, craft markets, and mimes who set up shop here.
We visit the pyramid shaped Anahuacalli Diego Rivera Museum, home to nearly 60,000 pieces of Pre-Hispanic works of art collected during his lifetime. The Aztec and Mayan style showrooms highlight nearly every indigenous Mexican civilization.
Then we will visit Frida Kahlo's Casa Azul (Blue House) Museum. The essence of Frida remains in all the objects her hands touched, the walls, the flowers... Browse a collection of art from the time of Frida and Diego, combined with works of art owned by famous friends of theirs. The museum also preserves Frida Kahlo’s personal collection of Pre-Hispanic art.
