MEXICO CITY MODERN + ZONA MACO (LAND)

Tour Runs: February 6-11, 2018

Mexico City has become a world-class center for art and design rivaling New York and Paris. Explore the city's Zona Maco art fair, fine museums and modernist buildings, visit artists' studios and the newest galleries, and discover firsthand why the city's dining scene is every bit as exciting as its art. Mexican architecture is enjoying its well-deserved moment, with increasing attention on both the mid-century modernism of Luis Barragán and others, and on cutting-edge contemporary architects, who combine the modernist legacy with a deep appreciation for craft and tradition. Accommodations are at the Hotel Marquis Reforma, located on the chic Paseo de la Reforma. Starting at $5,999 per person.
