Your guided city tour takes you along Avenida 9 de Julio, one of the widest boulevards in the world and studded by the Obelisk - an emblematic symbol of the city. Along this majestic highway is the 19th century Teatro Colón which, in terms of its architecture and design, as well as its excellent acoustics, is considered one of world’s best. On to the Plaza de Mayo, enclosed on three sides by the Metropolitan cathedral, the Town Hall and the Casa Rosada, the presidential palace. The tour continues to bohemian, arty La Boca, which was settled and built by Italian immigrants and has streets lined with brightly painted corrugated iron-clad houses. Visit the residential district of Recoleta, in the cemetery of which Evita Perón was laid to rest.
Evening guided visit to a tango show with dinner. The passage of time has given respectability to a dance once confined to the seedy underworld bars of the red-light La Boca district. Nowadays, a number of 'tango houses' offer a dinner and show as an evening out. This tango house in the San Telmo district of the capital occupies an early colonial building, founded in the 1920s in the art deco style of the time. It's a smart and evocative place with effective use of wood, tiles and columns to create atmosphere.
Of course, some of the visitors are tourists, but usually the audience is mainly porteños (residents of Buenos Aires) to whom each doleful ballad, each melancholy air, each sensual step, is part of their heritage. Included is dinner including local specialities such as bife de chorizo steak, and regional wines.
