Buenos Aires City Tour

Breakfast at the hotel. Our private journey starts at Plaza de Mayo, the city’s foundational site and witness of our country's political history. There we'll visit the Pink House, our Presidential Palace, the Cabildo, our Town Hall, and the Metropolitan Cathedral, the resting place of Argentina's founding father, José de San Martín. 

We'll then head for San Telmo, one of the oldest neighborhoods in Buenos Aires. It used to be the residential district favored by the upper class until late 19th century, when a yellow fever epidemic caused the wealthier families to leave north. The area was marginalized until the 1970s, when many artists and artisans came to San Telmo to set their workshops. Nowadays, thanks to its amazing architecture and hip atmosphere, this ancient neighborhood is really blooming. We'll walk its cobbled streets, where the city’s colonial past seems to come back to life, making a stop at Plaza Dorrego, best known for its traditional antiques fair, held every Sunday.

Leaving San Telmo behind, we’ll continue southwards to La Boca, one of the city’s most authentic and charming neighborhoods. It is a working class district, heavily shaped by Italian immigrants who came to our country in large numbers during the last quarter of the 19th century. Here, we’ll make a special visit to the mythical Caminito Street, which sums up everything that gives La Boca its distinctive spirit: the strong passion for soccer, the heavy presence of art and color, and the Tangoesque atmosphere.

Heading back north across the river, we'll pay a visit to Puerto Madero, the latest addition to the city’s barrios. In 1991, its huge warehouses and silos where remodeled and redesigned, to finally integrate the river to the city and to create a new corporate, residential, hotel and gastronomical district, which has become the playground for the pretty Porteños and the international jetset.

In Retiro and Recoleta, we will learn about the dream of our local aristocrats in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, when they sought to build a smallscale Paris in the heart of Buenos Aires. After visiting the impressive Plaza San Martín, we'll stroll down Avenida Alvear, looking up to see the many wonderful French style palaces which nowadays house a number of embassies. Then we'll visit the Basílica de Nuestra Señora del Pilar, one of the city’s oldest churches, which dates to the Colonial era. Finally, we’ll admire the celebrated Recoleta Cemetery, a true labyrinth of ornate mausoleums. We'll make a stop at Eva Peron’s grave, one of the country’s most recognizable icons. 

We'll come across sumptuous French palaces again in Palermo Chico. The area of Palermo is best known for its large parks designed by celebrated landscape architects, such as the illustrious Frenchman Charles Thays.

Tonight enjoy The Argentine Experience, a 3 course pairing dinner, walking distance from your hotel.

In the afternoon, visit Los Cerros de San Juan winery for a tasting. You will be able to taste the tannat, Uruguay's signature wine.

This variety is characterized by its softer tannins when compared with the "old wines" from France.
