Concierge.com's insider take:
There are many walking tours of the Centro Histórico, but none as fascinating as Monica Unikel's Jewish Tours (www.jewishtours.com.mx). Time and time again she takes you through nondescript doorways that lead to surprisingly opulent social halls, crowded apartment blocks, and hidden synagogues. Monica has an ironic sense of humor; she loves to point out, for example, that several Jewish settlements were located on Jesus and Mary Street. Other interesting tours of archaeological sites in and around the city are sponsored by the Mexican government's Instituto Nacional de Antropología e Historia (www.inah.gob.mx).
