OPTIONAL TOUR EXTENSION:  Bogota, Colombia

Bogota city is one of the biggest cities in Colombia. Being the capital, it makes the
centre of politics of the country. Bogotanos (people from Bogota) are well known
for their passion for art, politics and music. This city will undoubtedly provide you
with a great taste of Colombia! One of the most important attractions is The
Monserrate Hill, which you can reach either by cable car or by foot. Both ways are
really enjoyable. At the top, the Sanctuary of Monserrate is located, this is a great
symbol of faith of Colombians.
At the slopes of Monserrate, in the historical center of the city, you can explore the
Candelaria neighborhood. This neighbourhood represents a part of beautiful
colonial and republican architecture. Besides that, you also see amazing
landmarks like the Church of San Francisco and the Bank of the Republic building,
where you can also visit the Gold Museum of Colombia. La Candelaria offers a lot
of facilities for accommodation, restaurants and little bars. Further to the north, you
can visit the ‘Parque 93’ area, which is a different scene with more upgraded
restaurants and hotels, and also a big part of the nightlife of Bogota can be found
here.
On the outskirts of Bogota, where mountains, nature and history fuse, you can visit
many beautiful sites like Villa de Leyva, Zipaquira, and Periquera, which are
magical destinations that will always make you remember Bogota.
Day 1 – We start by picking you up from the international airport el Dorado. There
will be a representative of our company with a name cart to bring you to your
hotel. The rest of the day is free for you to explore. Please revise the optional
activities below this itinerary for an even more complete experience!
Day 2 – At 08:00 am, we start to visit the first miracle of Colombia, which is the Salt
Cathedral. This is located approximately 40 kilometres from Bogota in Zipaquirá, a
town of high indigenous value dominated by the former Muisca chief Zipa.
Architectural work built inside the salt mines 180 meters deeps that houses myths,
legends of the region and the miners. It is a unique place that recalles the Viacrucis
of Jesus Christ, attracting pilgrims and tourists. Then we make a short stop in
Zipaquira square to freely travel its most representative streets.

At 14:00 pm, we start the City tour with visit to Monserrate. We walk through the
Bolivar square with our professional guide getting to know the cathedral primada,
the Liévano palace, the Arzobispal palace, the sacred chapel, Capitolio, Casa de
los Comuneros, Casa del Florero, the gold museum (entrance included, closed on
