CLASSIC CITY TOUR (3 HOURS)


City: Buenos Aires

Half day Buenos Aires city tour, a cosmopolitan city that shows the influence of the immigrants that have arrived here. The tour starts at the historic Plaza de Mayo Square, scenery of resonant politic manifestations. It is surrounded by the Government House, best known as the "Pink House", which is the Government seat; the Cabildo (the old City Hall) and the Cathedral. The Avenida de Mayo, which starts in this square, is an interesting set of buildings of varied styles that reflect the diversity of its inhabitants. Through this avenue, you reach the Congress Palace. Wide avenues and green areas appear constantly trying to slow down the rhythm of this vertiginous city. A sample of this is the 9 de Julio Avenue, with its eight lanes divided by small green squares with old leafy trees and enriched by sculptures and fountains. In the middle of this avenue, in the Plaza de la Republica, the Obelisk arises as a symbol of the city.
Southwards, we reach the picturesque and colorful port neighborhood of La Boca with its famous street, "Caminito", which architectonic characteristics reflect the influence of the European citizens that arrived in this shores in the last years of the 19th century, specially Genoese sailors. The visit continues towards San Telmo, one of the oldest neighborhoods in Buenos Aires, which was also a center of immigrant settles and which keeps most of its architectonic patrimony untouched: its colonial houses, its cobbled streets. Every Sunday an antique fair is held in Plaza Dorrego. The area has also a lively night-life as there are many tango houses, restaurants and pubs. Then the visit goes on towards the modern district of Puerto Madero; Palermo neighborhood with its elegant residences framed by wide green areas; reaching finally the district of Recoleta, the most sophisticated neighborhood in Buenos Aires.
