Make sure to leave plenty of time to see everything: the view from all sides of the castle, the two parts of the castle itself (older and less old), and the rooftop garden. We wandered around and never tired of uncovering new rooms and furniture, art and landscaping, and of course the views.

I had been to Chapultepec Castle in 1972 and really enjoyed it but I think I appreciated it even more this time. It reminded me of Hearst Castle and although it is smaller, it is no less interesting.

Not every city in latin america can say they have a palace where actual European novelty resided. The place is in the top of a hill surrounded by a beautiful park. Now it is a museum with astonishing views of Mexico City.

Perfect for a leisurely stroll. Just be prepared for the masses of locals on the weekends! Middle of the park and a decent workout.

Be sure to visit while in Mexico City, the views are incredible and give you a true sense of how large the city really is. Don't forget to prepare yourself for the high altitudes as well if your not used to it!

Such a beautiful palace with fascinating interiors -- stained glass, luxurious wooden floor, marvel walls. Could assume how luxurious Maximilian's life were!
