Description

Start the tour in San Telmo, one of the oldest neighborhoods in Buenos Aires, and boasts a vibrant tango and arts scene. Its antique markets, street lighting (known as 'faroles'), cobblestones, old buildings, and original decor add to the unique bohemian atmosphere of the place. Sundays are the busiest days as the street market comes to life around Plaza Dorrego. Explore the San Telmo market and browse through the shops selling meat, vegetables, and other groceries. Most of them offer local gastronomy and specialties from all over the world. You will also taste some delicious empanadas. Continue along Defensa Street, in the heart of the San Telmo neighborhood, and reach the park. Take the bus to La Boca neighborhood, known for the Boca Juniors stadium and the colorful Caminito Street. Be enchanted by street tango dancing and singing performances and learn how tango, soccer, and different immigration influences have made Buenos Aires one of the most vibrant cities in the world. Onboard another bus, enjoy the views of the modern skyscrapers of Puerto Madero until you reach the Plaza de Mayo, the main square of Buenos Aires, and the political heart of Argentina. Visit the Metropolitan Cathedral and observe the Cabildo, the colonial City Hall, and the Casa Rosada, the seat of the executive power. After touring the square, head to the Obelisk, a symbol of Buenos Aires. Be a part of this incredible metropolis, going through the real experience of the daily life of an Argentine citizen, and walk along the lively 9 de Julio Avenue, the widest avenue in the world. Historical buildings, monuments, and streets will show the changes that the city has undergone since its foundation. Arrive in the Recoleta neighborhood by subway and see beautiful architecture, a large number of museums, elegant cafes and restaurants, exclusive avenues, and shopping malls. Visit the impressive Recoleta Cemetery, the resting place of most of the aristocratic families of the country and of well-known historical figures such as Eva Duarte Perón. Optional: After touring the cemetery, take a bus to the Montserrat neighborhood and visit the Barolo Palace, inaugurated in 1923 and declared a National Historic Monument. Its architecture has rigorous symbolism and includes numerous analogies and references to the Divine Comedy, by the poet Dante Alighieri. The tour ends with a visit to a beautiful viewpoint at the top of the Barolo Palace, with views of the Plaza Congreso, Avenida de Mayo, and its surroundings. Here we can relax at the bar located on the rooftop, having a drink and enjoying a snack.
