What you'll do

Become an honorary Paisa thanks to a crash course on all things Medellín in the heart of the city teeming with history, like at the towering Metropolitan Cathedral opened in 1931 or on the cultural San Antonio Plaza lined with inspiring art and restaurants to try later (your host will point out the best ones for traditional Mondongo Soup!). Snap a pic with one of the many thought-provoking sculptures in Botero Plaza, before darting away to Casa de la Memoria for a look into Colombia's turbulent past. Discover why Medellín is the City of Eternal Spring at a bustling yellow flower market or at the forest-like butterfly haven, the Botanical Gardens. Snacky? Your host knows just the stop for a bite of delicious empanadas to try after your adventure.

Next, head to a fountain-filled plaza dotted with the sculptures by famous-son-of-the-city artist Fernando Botero, before strolling past talented buskers to a concrete fortress stowing the intertwined history of the city.
