A new travel application, available for download for free at iTunes stores, will help travelers to explore one of the world’s largest cities at ease.

The newly released StyleMap Mexico City application invites travelers to get a feel for Mexico City before boarding the plane and be fully prepared to live like a local upon arriving to the dynamic city, iTunes said in a statement.

The app guides tourists about exploring Mexico City's cultural and art-influenced historical places, museums, art galleries, shopping places, drink and dining spots and more. The app is compatible with the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad.

Mexico City is a premier North American  tourism destination  and the third largest city in the world, welcoming more than 12 million visitors a year. The ancient capital presents a vibrant, contemporary culture combining pre-Hispanic, colonial and modern influences that span nearly seven centuries. With the latest travel app, Mexico City Tourism is expecting better experience for visitors.

"The app allows travelers to utilize accessible, insider guides to our exceptional city, highlighting our vibrant culinary, fashion, architectural and entertainment scenes," said Marcelo Ebrard, mayor of Mexico City.
