Buenos Aires

The Capital of Tango

1 Jan to 01 Jan
 
Surrender to the Latin passion of Buenos Aires, capital of Argentina and Tango. No one stays indifferent to this vibrant metropolis, whether by the charm and life of its colourful streets, or by its culture, cuisine and, of course, its music. Latin, but with an obvious European touch, this is a city with a unique charm.



Start by visiting the picturesque Caminito, the most famous and colourful street of Buenos Aires. In Plaza de Mayo, the main square of the city, stands the imposing Metropolitan Cathedral and the Casa Rosada, headquarters of the presidency of Argentina, which is coloured in pink. In Plaza de la República you can admire the Obelisk, one of the city's postcards. Visit the charming district of San Telmo and get lost in the Mercado where you can find everything from spices to antiques, including toys and vinyl records. Take the opportunity to take a picture with the mythical full sized character "Mafalda", sitting in a bench on the park. In the streets of this district you can also watch a tango dance, but do not miss a real lesson in one of the city's many schools.
 
The bohemian Plaza Serrano is one of the liveliest places in the city: during the day is ideal for shopping, visiting markets and art galleries or relax in one of the several terraces, and in the evening is a great option to have fun in the colourful and lively bars. If you're looking for a cosmopolitan district, Puerto Madero, recently recovered and located in the banks of the river Plata, is full of trendy restaurants and pleasant walks. Also famous for its cultural side, Buenos Aires has a huge supply of museums and more than 300 theatres, and the Teatro Colón is one of the most famous in the world for its beautiful architecture and perfect acoustic and has been home of great performances. Be amazed by the beauty of the buildings that you can find in every corner and know that the Recoleta cemetery is one of the most beautiful in the world!
