Embark on a comprehensive tour of Bogotá with a visit to the Monserrate Sanctuary on the imposing eastern hills of the city at an altitude of 3,150 meters above sea level.

Next, you will go to the historic neighborhood of La Candelaria and wander the picturesque cobbled streets that hold more than 400 years of history. Experience the student atmosphere within the campus of Universidad de los Andes, and then go downstream, following the Eje Ambiental to see how the city developed from the river that gave it life. Marvel at one of the most famous urban projects in Latin America, carried out by the architect Rogelio Salmona. Follow the San Francisco River to Jimenez Avenue to see an impressive collection of indigenous gold artifacts at the Gold Museum. Get the chance to shop at the handicrafts market at Parque Santander, and then enter the historic neighborhood of La Candelaria. Wander the cobblestone streets to the Botero Museum, where works by the eccentric Colombian artist, Fernando Botero are displayed. Stop at Chorro de Quevedo to appreciate the contrasts of the historical center, and then break for lunch at an authentic local restaurant. Continue to Plaza de Bolívar to explore the historical epicenter of Bogotá and see the administrative and government buildings. Look inside the Primatial Cathedral, and then drive towards the north of the city for a panoramic sight of the International Centre, La Macarena neighborhood and National Park.
