ITINERARY

DAY 1, Friday - Depart for Colombia
Depart for Bogota. Welcome to Colombia, a country of great diversity, culture, and natural beauty. Upon arrival, transfer to your hotel. Later, join your fellow travelers for a light meal and an orientation meeting at approximately 8 PM with your Tour Manager. We recommend that you select flights which arrive in Bogota no later than 7 PM on Day 1 of the itinerary, or earlier if possible Overnight: Bogota ▲ Meals: Dinner

DAY 2, Saturday - Bogota City Tour
Start the day with a walking tour of the colonial section of La Candelaria, stopping at Plaza de Bolivar, the main square of the city. Surrounding the square you'll see the Cathedral, Palace of Congress, the Cardinal's Palace and the colonial church of El Sagrario. Next, to the astonishing Gold Museum, where you'll see the world's greatest collection of pre-Hispanic native gold crafts. Continue to the Fernando Botero Museum, housing many of the paintings and sculptures of this world-famous contemporary Colombian artist. Let the Colombian lifestyle sink in during an included coffee break. Then, stop to play an energetic local game of Tejo*, the national sport of Colombia. Originally, gameplay consisted of hurling golden discs into a hole, at a distance of about 65 feet. However, the conquistadors did make their own subtle improvement to the game; they added explosives. Today, the game is played with metal disks in fields across the country. You will learn how to play and try your hand at throwing the disk. The rest of the day is at leisure to explore the city independently, with its more than 60 galleries and museums and shops with the latest fashions or, join the optional Funicular Train Ride** up to Monserrate for great views of the city.
