Take in the sights and sounds of Roma on a walking tour of the neighborhood’s top attractions, from street food stalls to street art hotspots and under-the-radar art galleries—both private and small group options are typically available. Local led tours are also great ways to see beyond the typical tourist favorites in this popular part of the city. Alternatively, explore independently with hop-on hop-off bus services or by bike.
Things to Know Before You Go
Roma is a must-visit for art, food, and culture fans in Mexico City.

There are plenty of ways to tour this neighborhood--by bus, bike, or on foot.
Roma may not be entirely wheelchair accessible, due to cracked and uneven pavements and raised sidewalks.
How to Get There
Roma is divided into two sections: Roma Norte and Roma Sur. The neighborhood borders Condesa to the west, Juárez to the north, and Doctores to the east and is traversed by a number of metro lines, metrobus routes, and local buses. Some of the most convenient Roma metro stations include Insurgentes (Pink Line) and Hospital General (Olive Line).
When to Get There
Roma has plenty to offer both daytime and nighttime crowds. Arrive in the day for street art tours, museum visits, and shopping at the numerous boutiques in the neighborhood. After dark, Roma comes alive with taco vendors, bars, and late-night eateries that will appeal to foodies and first-time visitors in particular.
Other Top Mexico City Neighborhoods
While Roma is perhaps one of the best-known and best-loved Mexico City neighborhoods, Condesa to the west is a quieter but just as enticing alternative for those with bigger budgets. Juárez to the north is a cooler, more residential neighborhood with just as many coffee shops and cafés. Meanwhile, the historic center is a hub of centuries-old buildings and museums.
