Itinerary

Roundtrip Buenos Aires

DAY 1 BUENOS AIRES
Upon arrival at Buenos Aires, capital of Argentina, you will be met and transferred to your hotel. Accommodation: Americas Tower for 3 nights
DAY 2 BUENOS AIRES
Morning city tour of Buenos Aires named “The Paris of South America”. Buenos Aires is a cosmopolitan city that manifests at each step the influence of the numerous immigrant populations which helped form it. The tour starts in the area named Plaza de Armas today known as Plaza de Mayo, the historical, political and cultural center of the city. The Pyramid de Mayo, was the first national historical monument and was inaugurated in 1811. In its surrounding areas you can see Casa Rosada the actual seat of Executive Power (Presidential Palace) and the Metropolitan Cathedral. From the Plaza, we start the tour going down Avenida de Mayo, one of the most interesting urban developments of the city with its variety of architectural styles, wide avenues and spacious green areas. The tour continues all the way to the neighborhood of San Telmo, one of the oldest in the city, settled at the end of the XIX century by aristocratic families. This neighborhood, in which every Sunday the antiques fair takes place around Plaza Dorrego, keeps expanding its great architectural heritage. The area is also very active at night as it is the center for most of the tango parlors, “tanguerias”, restaurants and bars. Going further south you arrive at the picturesque and colorful port neighborhood of La Boca, with its famous street “Caminito” and the multicolor houses still being used today and the “cantinas”(small restaurants). Continue to the modern neighborhood of Puerto Madero, with its old piers converted into offices, apartments and elegant restaurants. Finally arrives at La Recoleta. The cemetery of Recoleta surprises visitors with its rich architecture and with the important social and political personalities that are buried there, among whom is Eva Peron. Next to the cemetery is the church of Our Lady of Pilar, the former convent which today is part of the Cultural Center of Recoleta, the shopping area, Buenos Aires Design, and the exposition center, Palais de Glace. Return to hotel. Afternoon at leisure (B)
DAY 3 BUENOS AIRES
Enjoy today at your leisure to explore the city. In the evening, Dinner and Tango show at the Esquina Carlos Gardel. The tango is the music of Buenos Aires. It originated in the 1880 ghettos which were populated by Italian and Spanish immigrants, Africans and gauchos. Each song has a story to tell about the city, its history and its people. In spite of its humble origins in the ghettos and brothels of the 1920’s, the tango rose to the salons of the upper classes. At “Esquina Carlos Gardel” one can enjoy excellent cuisine, an art nouveau style of decor an artistic offering of the highest level and a mythical atmosphere ideal for an unforgettable evening.
