The city is home to so many attractions that you are not going to run out of things to do. Take a look at the few things you can do when you are in Medellin.

The Medellin Metrocable

The city is in a large Andean bowl. The best way to get a panoramic view is to get on public transport and reach The Medellin Metrocable. This took me above the city into the hills to surround the city. The view that it offered was just amazing. Do not forget to click pictures. Take the ride from Santo Domino till Parque Arvi. The ride took me around 15 minutes. At the top, there are some places where you can get some snack.

Museum of Antioquia

It is actually a city hall which has been converted to a museum. I came across the collection of Fernando Botero. He is one of the popular artists of Columbia. The guides there recommended me to start from the top floor. There I found the early pieces and gradually made way down to see his evolution. However, you will also find works of some international artists.

Guataupe

There are so many things to do in this city that it is difficult to cover one in a single visit. El Peñón de Guatapé, the monolithic rock form is 200 meters higher than the landscape which surrounds it. The view from the top is just mesmerizing.
