Colonias along Paseo de la Reforma

Paseo de la Reforma: A visitor's guide to the neighborhoods and points of interest along Mexico City's grandest avenue.

The Paseo de la Reforma was a project, during his brief rein, of Maximilian I of Mexico. In 1864, in an effort to solidify his hold on the capital, the Emperor set out to emulate the boulevards of the great European capitals. Vienna's Ringstraße would have been first on his mind. The Paseo de la Emperatriz, in honor of  his wife, Carlota, was put under the command of a mining engineer, Alois Bolland.

The walking guides below are intended to allow you to easily get from one point to the next without missing any of the big important points. Of course, it's the details in between that make each walk that much better.

Of course, the Paseo de la Reforma also passes through an important stretch of Chapultepec Park. You can tackle the museums along the avenue here:
