Day 2 – Buenos Aires

Discover Buenos Aires on a private city tour.

Embark on a private city tour of Buenos Aires, a city as captivating as it is diverse. With its splendid array of architectural styles, from colonial buildings to elegant French palaces and contemporary skyscrapers, along with its vibrant nightlife and countless cultural offerings, Buenos Aires stands out as one of the world’s most enthralling cities.

Today’s itinerary provides an immersive introduction to this vast and dynamic city. Start by visiting Plaza de Mayo, the historic heart of Buenos Aires, where iconic landmarks include the Presidential Palace, known as La Casa Rosada (the Pink House), the Cabildo (the city’s original town hall), and the Neoclassical Metropolitan Cathedral, the final resting place of Argentina’s founding father, José de San Martín. In Palermo Chico, a district within Palermo, you’ll encounter impressive French-style palaces and meticulously designed parks created by renowned landscape architects, including the Frenchman Charles Thays.

As you explore Retiro and Recoleta, you’ll feel as though you’ve stepped into the streets of Paris. After admiring the grand Plaza San Martín, known for its connection to the renowned writer Jorge Luis Borges, take a leisurely stroll along Avenida Alvear, lined with exclusive boutiques representing some of the world’s top luxury brands, as well as grand French-style mansions that now house various embassies. Your next stop is the Basílica de Nuestra Señora del Pilar, one of the city’s oldest churches, completed in 1732. In Recoleta Cemetery, a mesmerizing labyrinth of ornate mausoleums, you’ll have the option to visit the famous resting place of Eva Perón, one of Argentina’s most iconic figures.

Continue your exploration to Puerto Madero, the city’s latest addition to its diverse neighborhoods. In 1991, its massive warehouses and silos underwent a remarkable transformation to integrate the city with the river, giving rise to a new corporate, residential, and gastronomic district filled with trendy restaurants and bars. Your journey then takes you to San Telmo, one of Buenos Aires’ oldest neighborhoods. Once the favored residential district of the city’s wealthier inhabitants, San Telmo saw a decline in the late 19th century due to a yellow fever epidemic, which led affluent families to move away. It remained neglected and marginalized until the 1970s when low rents attracted artists and artisans to set up studios and workshops. Today, San Telmo is a vibrant neighborhood, characterized by its remarkable architecture and trendy atmosphere, featuring numerous antique and vintage clothing shops. Stroll along its cobbled streets to Plaza Dorrego, renowned for its traditional antique fair, held every Sunday. In San Telmo, you’ll likely encounter tango performances in the streets and plazas, immersing yourself in the city’s passionate embrace of soccer, vibrant street art, and tango around every corner.

To conclude the day, savor a welcome dinner and show, Argentinean style. Located in the heart of the San Telmo neighborhood, a historic conventillo has been transformed into an institution of Buenos Aires’ culture and nightlife. Here, 35 resident artists, two tango orchestras, a folklore band, dancers, and singers come together, complemented by a menu offering traditional and international dishes, as well as Argentinean wines. This experience promises a lively introduction to Buenos Aires.
