We took Uber from our hotel (Westin) and started our walk in Zone 1 from San Francisco Church. From here, you have a pedestrian zone that leads you to Central Park / Plaza. We also visited the Cathedral of Guatemala and La Merced Church which are all in Zone 1.

Definitely worth seeing, although be prepared for a somewhat disappointing interior compared with the imposing exterior.
