The sculpture garden at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) campus is a peaceful and striking break from the chaotic urban life.
For a great selection of Mexican crafts, visit the Ciudadela, four blocks south of the Alameda Park on Balderas Avenue just south of Paseo de la Reforma. It's a semi-covered market that covers 16,000 square meters with more than 200 stalls. It's worth quite a chunk of time if you want the full tour. There are some great comedores (food stalls) if you need a pick-me-up snack or beverage.
La Lagunilla market is a fantastic place for those looking for furniture, clothing, toys, records, books, and accessories from the Twentieth century. Arrive early and bring cash.
This raucous and sometimes crazy plaza is filled with mariachi bands and other musicians.
