Take your walking feet over to the delightful districts of Condesa and Roma, leafy residential areas with parks, plazas, restaurants, cafés and wide boulevards. Both areas feel almost European. On their streets, you will find some of the best shopping, dining and nightlife in Mexico City. Start in Condesa, a district that was once the home of Mexico's biggest cinematic stars of the 1940s and '50s. There are more trees here than in any other part of the city as well as a clutch of fine restaurants, shops and galleries. One of the highlights of this part of the metropolis is the Art Deco architecture. Take your time studying beautiful forms. Amble down Amsterdam Avenue, a tree-lined street that follows the route of the city's old horse track. Sit on one of the benches and look up at the attractive lampposts, both types of street furniture are original designs from the 1920s. Roma is the first "modern" neighborhood in the city and welcomes visitors with its excellent shops, restaurants, cafés, markets and galleries. Head down Alvaro Obregon Avenue and appreciate the beauty of fountains and sculptures by talented Mexican artists. Go shopping in the stores around Plaza Rio de Janeiro and then sit in one of its cafés or restaurants looking over at the large fountain which features a replica statue of Michelangelo's David.
