Astounding Buenos Aires
Nearly all trips to Argentina begin in the capital of Buenos Aires, the “Capital Federal.” One of the more elegant and classy cities in South America, this living, breathing metropolis is an intoxicating mix of styles and influences. Start your walking tour at the Plaza de Mayo and stroll among historic, sculpted buildings fringed by sunny palm trees. The city’s love for art and culture is evident here, with countless cinemas, galleries, and the ever-majestic opera house along your route. Meander through the lovely parks of the trendy Palermo neighborhood as you make your way to the harbor. At Puerto Madero, take a walk along the ocean and stop for empanadas at one of the many waterside small cafes. Head inland once more to take in the Barrio Norte, a heavily European influenced area complete with palaces and cobblestoned streets. At night, enjoy the serenade of some local musicians Buenos Aires is famous of.
