This massive public square offers great viewing of so many adjacent landmarks. Busy and vibrant, a great gathering spot. Not over run with people, that you would experience in Europe.

Beautiful historic part of the city, definitely worth checking out! The facade of the cathedral is mesmerizing with all of the statues and you can catch some traditional dance troupe and good people watching as well.

The Zocalo of Mexico City is large, but I guess it should be for a city as large as Mexico City. It is a great feeling to stand in the center and gaze all around the square-so many impressive buildings-so many places to visit within...More

Es seguro caminar de Bellas Artes al zócalo a las 10pm. Habrá mucha gente y la calle peatonal está iluminada. Recomiendo el bajo perfil (no joyas ostentosas) y mantenerse alerta. Disfruta tu estancia.

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.
