Highlights of this city tour around Quito: a. Basilica: situated along Venezuela Avenue, you can climb up to the top of the towers and get a sweeping panoramic view of Quito and the Andes. Breathtaking. b. Cafe Muzeo: a restaurant perched on top of one of the peaks in Quito. Great food, with stunning views. c. Campania Church: tons of gold used to construct this church d. San Francisco del Blas Church and Museum e. Artisan Market in the New City I wanted to check out Teleferiqo, but feared fainting due to altitude sickness. I also wanted to check out the Banco Central Museum, as recommended by multiple travel books, but it was closed on Mondays. I fly back to SF tomorrow!
