Like many colonial Mexican cities, Toluca’s development has created a ring of urban sprawl around what remains a very picturesque old town. The traffic problems alone can be enough to dampen the city’s appeal, but those who make time to visit will find Toluca a pleasant, if bustling, small city. It’s an enjoyable place to spend a day exploring attractive plazas, lively shopping arcades, art galleries and museums.
