Bogota is often grouped together with cities like San Francisco, Buenos Aires and Dubai in terms of economical, political and cultural offerings which means that the Colombian capital is certainly an exciting city to visit! From century-old colonial squares to ultra-modern skyscraper, this city is built on contracts with plenty to discover at street-level.
La Candelaria: So many events that mark Colombia's history took place in this neighbourhood. It is strewn with interesting churches and museums and is the oldest part of the city. Top sights include the Emerald Museum, Museo Botero (for amazing art!) and the Museum Francisco Jose de Caldas.
Cerro de Monserrate: For great views of the city, take Bogota's funicular up the hill to this place. Don't forget to bundle up because it can be quite cold up on the top of the hill. You could also hike up, it takes 1.5 hours.
Avenida Septima: Head to this popular Bogota street on a Friday or Sunday night to see all sorts of street performers, catch magic shows and watch live music all for free. There are also plenty of stalls selling handcrafts and food. It's always a good time.
