Welcome to Buenos Aires. Elegant, old-worldly, with a touch of Paris here and a touch of London there, a dash of New York cosmopolitanism and big splash of Italian exuberance, the city also has a strong Latin America personality as well as uniquely Argentine elements such as tango bars. Here, everything is grand, on a scale fit for kings: Tourists photograph vast steaks at restaurants, Nueve de Julio avenue ranks as the world’s widest, a cemetery so fancy that it occupies one of the poshest parts of the poshest neighborhood, while the entire city fronts onto the world’s widest river. Buenos Aires never fails to impress.
Buenos Aires sightseeing south. Explore some of the most recognizable landmarks in the southern part of the Paris of South on a four-hour sightseeing tour. Find out about the history and culture of Buenos Aires, as you take in some of the city’s the most significant spots. Discover the most important square in the country: Plaza de Mayo. The country was founded here in 1580, and today the most important governmental buildings are located on these four streets including Casa Rosada (Government House), Cabildo (City Hall) and Catedral Metropolitana (Metropolitan Cathedral). Government Palace opens to visitors if you’re keen to take a look inside. Walk down Defensa Street to reach San Telmo, one of the oldest areas of the city. This neighborhood maintains a great part of its architectonic patrimony intact: colonial-style houses, cobbled streets and a bustling collection of artists’ studios, ethnic restaurants, antique shops and boutiques. Walk through the oldest and narrowest streets of this protected colonial district, with its famous cobbled streets to Plaza Dorrego. This is the heart of 19th-century Buenos Aires, plus this area is home to some fascinating antique shops.
The next stop-off is the picturesque district of La Boca, home to Caminito, perhaps the city’s most photographed area thanks to its corrugated iron and brightly-colored houses. This block houses one of the few outdoor museums in the world, where artists exhibit works related to the influence of mainly Italian citizens who arrived at this port at the end of the 19th century. Also stop by at the famous Bombonera stadium, home to legendary football soccer giants Boca Juniors, whose colors of blue and yellow adorn most of the houses and stores in this barrio.
Before returning to your hotel, pass through Puerto Madero and see this regenerated area where redbrick warehouses have been transformed into trendy restaurants and bars.
