Road Trips from Mexico City
Drive your hire car back in time to the colonial city of Tlaxcala, which is also a great place for a bit of mountain biking or volcano walking at La Malinche. In the city of Tlaxcala, east of Mexico City, park your hire car and see the murals in the Palacio del Gobierno, which tell the history of the town. After a quick lunch, drive to the Cacaxtla archaeological site for more vivid murals.
For another fascinating road trip from Mexico City, drive to mountainous Cholula, one of the most important holy cities in ancient Mexico. Explore the many churches around the town then head for Mexico’s largest pyramid, Pyramide Tepanapa, and two most-famous volcanoes, Popocatepetl and Iztaccihuatl outside the town before driving your hire car back to Mexico City.
