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.
Go for a jaunt from Bogota to Zipaquira to see Catedral de Sal de Zipaquira about 54 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: examine the collection at Gold Museum (Museo del Oro), take in the architecture and atmosphere at La Catedral Primada, make a trip to Casa Libreria Wilborada 1047, and take an in-depth tour of Casa Museo Quinta de Bolivar.

For ratings, other places to visit, photos, and other tourist information, use the Bogota day trip planning tool.

Villa de Leyva ©
Positioned away from major trade routes and exploitable resources, the colonial town of Villa de Leyva has been largely left alone--leaving a window into the 16th century that has become one of Colombia's most popular attractions.
Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 13th (Sun): examine the collection at Museo El Fosil, admire the striking features of Casa Terracota, contemplate the waterfront views at Pozos Azules, then see the interesting displays at Casa Museo Antonio Narino, and finally pause for some serene contemplation at Iglesia de Nuestra Senora del Rosario.

For ratings, more things to do, and more tourist information, refer to the Villa de Leyva attractions planner.

You can drive from Bogota to Villa de Leyva in 2.5 hours. Alternatively, you can take a bus. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 15th (Tue) to allow enough time to drive back home.
