Start in the historic city center, from Plaza Bolívar, originally called Plaza de Armas. The square adopted its current name in 1883 on the 100th birthday of El Libertador Simón Bolívar. The corners surrounding the plaza feature buildings of historic importance: Caracas Cathedral, Government Palace, City Hall, the Yellow House and The Capitol. This is where your tour begins: in the heart of Venezuela's history.
Seeing Bolívar's birthplace is next on the list, as you visit the colonial house that today is filled with period art, including paintings by famous artists like Tito Salas whose work captured highlights of El Libertador’s life. Visit the Capitolio, Palacio Legislativo and Palacio Federal where the golden keys to Bolivar’s mausoleum are kept.
Then, take the city's famous cable car to the top of the Ávila Mountain range. Ávila National Park borders Caracas, separating the sea from the city. Breathe in and admire the pure, contrasting atmosphere of the park with the rush and bustle of the Venezuelan capital. From here you'll be able to see Caracas on one side and the Caribbean Sea on the other, a vista you'll never forget.
