Best of Buenos Aires

Top itineraries and travel advice in and around Buenos Aires
One of South America’s most vibrant cities, Buenos Aires has European-style architecture, an impressive dining scene and great nightlife. The Argentine metropolis is packed with sights, from grand cathedrals and Parisian-style plazas to sprawling museums full of centuries of artwork and historical relics. You could spend many days just exploring the city neighborhoods, visiting famous markets, catching tango shows (or learning a few moves in a dance class) and joining locals for picnics and strolls at pretty parks and nature reserves.

Tours on foot or by bicycle take in some of the iconic landmarks of Buenos Aires, like the presidential palace, as well as artsy neighborhoods like San Telmo. You can take guided tours of the 2500-seat Teatro Colón, a world-class venue for opera, ballet and classical music.
