San Miguel de Allende : The Best City in the World - Duration: 6:18.

Those who have visited describe San Miguel de Allende as an enchanting city, one with remarkable architecture. The cobblestoned streets and brightly colored Spanish-colonial buildings are a signature of the city. In fact, the 64-block historic center is so unique and picturesque, it was named a UNESCO World Heritage site.

The Church of the Immaculate Conception — known locally as “Las Monjas” — is one of San Miguel’s most identifiable landmarks. For a very Mexican cultural experience, travelers should also make the trip to the “Sistine Chapel of Mexico” at the Sanctuary of Atotonilco. Its walls are covered in stunning, elaborate religious murals from the 18th century.

Look for local handicrafts at any of the city’s street markets, and be sure to hit the gigantic El Tianguis de los Martes held every Tuesday. Baskets, pottery, and brightly embroidered clothing are among the top souvenirs.

One of the most acclaimed, Moxi Restaurant, is helmed by Enrique Olvera, who is often cited as one of Mexico’s best chefs. He takes classic Mexican recipes and gives them a twist, like tempura shrimp with criolla fries and chipotle mayonnaise.

Before visiting, it’s wise to pick up a good pair of comfortable shoes. Travelers can walk pretty much anywhere in the city — until it’s the end of the day and it’s time to trek up one of the city’s steep hills. You can also ride the affordable public bus (about 30 cents) or jump into a reasonably priced taxi.

This Is the Best Pizza Chain in America .
Earlier this year, we opened a poll asking you to vote for your favorite American pizza chains. More than 100 chains were considered, from the largest international behemoths to far smaller regional ones.&nbsp;What exactly did our voters look for in determining their favorites? We asked them to vote only for chains that they’ve been to, of course, but also asked them to choose those they truly respect. They were told to take into account the freshness and deliciousness of the product as well as the service, convenience, menu diversity and overall experience. Some voted based on a loyalty to local chains, while others preferred the big guys.
