Mexico-City : Michelin's recommendations
Without denying the ills that affect the megalopolis of Mexico City - including violence, pollution, poverty and delinquency - you’ll have great fun exploring this dazzling former lakeside city known as Tenochtitlán, besieged by the Spanish conquistadors in the 16C.
