If passion, vibrancy and culture are on your list of must haves when visiting a new city, then you’ve found your mecca in Buenos Aires. A city that is so alive, and so enticing, it will leave in you awe with every corner turned. The beauty of its architecture, both new and old, the diverse culture of its people and raw energy that radiates from this cosmopolitan capital is impossible to resist. It will lure you in and leave you beguiled by its beauty, and why shouldn’t it. As Evita’s balcony at the Casa Rosada (the President’s Palace) calls out to you, you can quite literally put yourself in the same spot as Argentina’s most famous first lady Eva Peron. There is no better start to truly immersing yourself in this city.
Once you have become Argentinian in spirit, you are ready to explore all this unrivalled city can show you. From people watching in Plaza de Mayo, to dining on steaks and drinking wine that one can only dream about, the best way to get to know this city intimately, is to join a walking tour with the most fortunate of people, who get to call Buenos Aires home.
The people of Buenos Aires are proud, passionate and full of warmth. They love their music, and of course the famed Tango dance, which can sometimes even be seen in the streets outside cafes and bistros, demonstrating that the spontaneous Latin spirit is not just something to read about, but something to live by.
