Highlights and Main attractions of Buenos Aires
As one of the world’s most iconic metropolises, Argentina’s sultry soul, and the birthplace of tango, Buenos Aires needs little introduction. European roots and history give the city a sense of glamour and sophistication alongside what is ultimately a distinctly Latin charm, earning it the title of the ‘Paris of Latin America’, and the different districts or ‘barrios’ are almost like separate towns in themselves, each with their own quirks, colours and characters. Spend time getting to know the city, before exploring some of the working ranchas or ‘estancias’ in the pampas that are reached just an hour outside of the city – another world and dropped pace of gauchos, rolling countryside and Argentine hospitality.
On the eastern coast of Argentina, it is a major gateway connecting Europe and North America to the continent, with great direct connections from London.
Known more locally as ‘BA’, this vibrant city is filled with wide leafy avenues, plazas and elegant buildings.
