Colombia's heart and soul, Bogota has earned the nickname "Athens of South America" thanks to its abundance of universities, libraries, and lower-level schools.
Popular historic sites such as Catedral de Sal de Zipaquira and Bolivar Square are in your itinerary. Museum-lovers will get to explore Gold Museum (Museo del Oro) and Museo Botero del Banco de la Republica. And it doesn't end there: make a trip to Monserrate, take an in-depth tour of Casa Museo Quinta de Bolivar, examine the collection at Museo Nacional de Colombia, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at La Catedral Primada.

For reviews, where to stay, photos, and other tourist information, read our Bogota trip itinerary website.
