Watch our video itineraries as we explore this Colombian capital city for two days. We show you where to stay, see, eat and drink in Bogota – one of the highest altitude cities in the world. We loved the Candelaria district – safe only during the day and full of characters and charm.
Bogotá is Colombia’s sprawling, high-altitude capital. La Candelaria, its cobblestoned center, features colonial-era landmarks like the neoclassical performance hall Teatro Colón and the 17th-century Iglesia de San Francisco. It’s also home to popular museums including the Museo Botero, showcasing Fernando Botero’s art, and the Museo del Oro, displaying pre-Columbian gold pieces. [google]
