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.
Let the collections at Gold Museum (Museo del Oro) and Museo Nacional de Colombia capture your imagination. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Laguna de Guatavita and Museo Santa Clara. Explore Bogota's surroundings by going to Mina de Sal de Nemocon (in Nemocon) and Zipaquira (Catedral de Sal de Zipaquira & Iglesia de Nuestra Senora de los Dolores). There's lots more to do: wander the streets of Parque 93, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at La Catedral Primada, stop by Barrio La Candelaria, and browse the eclectic array of goods at Mercado de las Pulgas de Usaquen.
