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.
Start off your visit on the 9th (Wed): take in the architecture and atmosphere at Iglesia del Carmen.

Bogota

Athens of South America

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.
Explore Bogota's surroundings by going to Laguna de Guatavita (in Tierra Negra) and Catedral de Sal de Zipaquira (in Zipaquira). There's much more to do: examine the collection at Gold Museum (Museo del Oro), tour the pleasant surroundings at Monserrate, explore the world behind art at Museo Botero del Banco de la Republica, and let your taste buds guide you at a local gastronomic tour.

To find ratings, other places to visit, traveler tips, and tourist information, refer to the Bogota trip maker tool.

Getting from Villa de Leyva to Bogota by car takes about 2.5 hours. Other options: take a bus. January in Bogota sees daily highs of 23°C and lows of 7°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 15th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
