Argentina: Buenos Aires

Visit Us

Along with Rio, this is a city worth crossing the Atlantic for in its own right. Dynamic, stylish and nostalgic, it’s the continent’s most European city, but does not lack South American verve. Its contrasting neighbourhoods reveal colonial plazas, shady avenues, quirky antique fairs, street art, world famous theatres and football stadiums and spruced-up metropolitan port districts. Studded with extensive parks, cutting-edge boutique hotels, designer boutiques and a myriad of restaurants, bars and nightclubs, it’s a restless place, challenging to find your way around but well worth the effort. It’s the beating heart of Argentina, the hub for visits throughout the country.

Walk round the Plaza de Mayo and the Casa Rosada, which evoke the high emotions of Eva Peron’s speeches and the vigils of the Mothers of the Disappeared still take place today.

Savour the world's best quality beef with a thick juicy steak and bottle of Malbec on the water’s edge next to the yacht club at trendy docklands area of Puerto Madero.

What our experts say

Buenos Aires is a beautiful, very sophisticated city with a lot to see, so for me three nights would be a minimum. While there, I would certainly make sure to enjoy the quirky boutiques of the Palermo district and, of course, explore the home of tango: San Telmo, with its atmospheric cobbled streets, great steak restaurants and the lively antique market at Plaza Dorrego every Sunday. Other must-dos include taking a long leisurely lunch down at the renovated dock area of Puerto Madero in the sunshine, as well as wandering through the famous Recoleta cemetery.
