I had the pleasure to visit the beautiful City of Quito in 2017. Especially I liked the old town and the gothic architecture at Catedral del Voto Nacional. Definitively a place not to be missed! You can do a walking tour too. Totally recommended!

In this area you can find a lot of nice and historic buildings and places to visit. An easy and convenient way to get there is doing it by a walking tour. Would recommend to visit this area. As everywhere watch out after dark.

Spent the end of most days here. There's just so much to see and do. Churches, shops, restaurants and museums everywhere. Plenty to eat and drink. Be sure to visit the Plaza for great people watching.

Took a guided tour. Visited all the major sights in a lot of detail. Very impressive and great ambience in Independence square particularly. Well worth doing but Quito is a hilly town so tiring for a lot of walking.
