Athens of South America

Colombia's heart and soul, Bogota has earned the nickname "Athens of South America" thanks to its abundance of universities, libraries, and lower-level schools.

Change things up with these side-trips from Bogota: Centro de Memoria El Cuartico (in Valledupar) and Parque Natural Chicaque (in Chicaque). And it doesn't end there: shop like a local with Barrio La Candelaria, examine the collection at Casa de Moneda - Coleccion Numismatica del Banco de la Republica, and admire the natural beauty at Piero Jardinero.
