Overview

Along with Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires 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.

Rich with culture, be sure to try Argentinian cuisine at traditional food spots like hole-in-the-wall parrillas or choripan street food stalls. Visit a local milonga, a traditional tango hall, or go to see a tango show at San Telmo where the dance first originated. You’ll find a plethora of authentic experiences on a Buenos Aires holiday.
