From humble beginnings in 1580, Buenos Aires is now home to over one third of the population of Argentina. Absorb the city’s stunning architecture by taking a stroll along one of its tree lined boulevards or why not visit one of the 57 museums which house some of the continent’s best collections.
Don’t miss the atmosphere at the famous Sunday market in San Telmo and any visit would not be complete without seeing Recoleta Cemetery, the resting place of Eva Peron.
By night, Buenos Aires comes alive with its huge selection of restaurants, bars and venues to choose from. The gastronomic scene in Buenos Aires has never been better and the area of Puerto Madero is now home to some of the world’s top chefs. However don’t rush out, Argentines take their time and most places don’t busy until at least 9pm.
Buenos Aires has many different neighbourhoods, each with its own character (like London).Three of our favourite districts are Recoleta, Retiro and Palermo Soho.
Recoleta is well connected and home to grand buildings, boutiques and fine restaurants. Retiro puts you right in the heart of the city's attractions whilst Palermo Soho is home to quirky shops, fashionable restaurants and a lively weekend market.
Temperatures in summer (Nov - Feb) can reach highs of 30̊C in the sunshine so for sightseeing we would ideally recommend spring (Sep - Nov) or autumn (Feb - Apr) when temperatures are a little cooler, but the city can be visited all year round.
