We pick you up at your hotel (or at the airport if you have an extended layover) and head to Monserrate, the famous church that looks down on Bogota. We take a ride up Monserrate, tour the sanctuary, take in the view from 2,000 feet above Bogota and bargain with the many artisans. After the ride down, we proceed to the Candelaria area, walk through Plaza Bolivar and past the President’s Palace before taking lunch at a typical Bogota restaurant. After lunch we visit the Botero Museum to see the famous painter’s works, including a thunder-jowled Mona Lisa. The museum also includes works by Picasso, Monet, Renoir and Matisse. We stop for a cup of coffee at a local coffee shop, then walk to the Museum of Gold to marvel at the 30,000 pre-Colombian gold artefacts.
