If you hate crowds, this may not be for you, but the main things you want to see in DF are here and it's amazing, even though overwhelming. Avoid weekends and holidays for a more tamed experience.

with the main cathedral, the huge government building, and lots of other buildings, you should just walk around and see the sites. the pedestrian streets, like madero, are very pleasant walks that are fine for people watdhing and ambling around the city center.
