What To Expect
Trundle through the old-world streets and make a stop at the Basilica of the National Vow, considered to be the largest neo-Gothic temple in the Americas. Then, make your way to Panecillo Mirador, Quito’s best-known hill. Marvel at the juxtaposition of colonial and contemporary as you look out over the capital city.
Head to Independence Plaza—commonly called Plaza Grande—where locals and tourists gather for street performances, conversation, and entertainment; and pause to see the Presidential and Government Palace.
Explore the Church of the Jesuits and admire its intricate gold leaf and gilded plaster decorations before finishing on traditional La Ronda Street, which is lined with artisan stores and old houses.
Then, visit a local ice-cream parlor and taste traditional Ecuadorian flavors before discovering a craft hat store.
