Quito

Light of America

High in the Andean foothills, Quito remains one of the world's most photogenic capital cities, featuring two dramatic mountain ranges as its backdrop. With an old town designated as a World Heritage Site, a Quito holiday draws architecture fans eager to discover an atmospheric neighborhood packed with lovingly restored buildings, churches, and plazas dating back to the early colonial days. A comprehensive tour of Quito also reveals the city's modern districts, where trendy apartment complexes and hip shops line congested commercial thoroughfares. In the end, most visitors return from their Quito holiday impressed by the city's ability to preserve its warm local culture and relaxed way of life in the face of modern developments and mass tourism.
