Itinerary

Plaza de Mayo (Stop 1)

The May Square is located in the Porteño Downtown, neighborhood of Monserrat, in the area where the foundation of Buenos Aires took place. The Plaza de Mayo is the most important and oldest public square of the city. The name of this square commemorates the Revolution of May 25, 1810, date in which the citizens gathered around to expel the Viceroy and form a creole government. Since then, the Square has been a silent witness to the most important political and social events in the country.

Barrio de San Telmo (Pass by)

San Telmo is an old neighborhood with a bohemian touch thanks to its temporary art galleries, night bars and street murals. The Defensa street, full of antique shops and bustling brasseries, passes through the Dorrego square, where many tourists come on Sundays to see the street market and street performances. Winding roads run through Lezama Park among jacaranda trees. The neighborhood is full of exclusive restaurants with tango shows.

Barrio de La Boca (Stop 2)

La Boca is a working class neighborhood that has several attractions next to the Riachuelo. Asadores and street artists mark the entire Caminito, a narrow alley flanked by brightly colored zinc houses that evoke its origin as an immigrant neighborhood. The Bombonera is the Boca Juniors stadium and a whole hotbed on match days. The Proa Foundation is a museum of modern art with temporary exhibitions and views of the old docks.

Caminito is a museum alley and a traditional passage, of great cultural and tourist value, located in the La Boca neighborhood of the city of Buenos Aires, Argentina. The place acquired cultural significance because it inspired the music of the famous tango Caminito (1926), composed by Juan de Dios Filiberto. 

Barrio de Puerto Madero (Pass by)

Puerto Madero is a renovated neighborhood that faces the bay. Its renovated redbrick buildings house exclusive grills frequented by tourists and businessmen at lunchtime. There are also modern skyscrapers with multinationals and luxury apartments. The lakes in the area are surrounded by trails, as is the ecological reserve Costanera Sur, very popular with runners and families. The elegant suspension bridge of the Woman connects the ports.

Teatro Colón (Pass by)

The Teatro Colón is an opera house in the city of Buenos Aires. Due to its size, acoustics and trajectory, it´s considered one of the five best in the world. According to a survey conducted by the acoustic expert Leo Beranek and outstanding international opera and orchestra directors, the Teatro Colón has the hall with the best acoustic for opera and the second best for concerts in the world. Comparable with the most important lyrical rooms in the world, such as the Scala in Milan, the Metropolitan Opera House in New York, the State Opera of Vienna, the Royal Opera House (Covent Garden) in London and the Paris Opera, it is an unequivocal place of consecration for those who present themselves in it and an inescapable place for music lovers.

Barrio de Retiro (Pass by)

Retiro is a neighborhood with great diversity and quiet streets. Art galleries and chic coffee shops lead to the emblematic and busy train station of Retiro, British style and surrounded by fast food stalls. The art deco tower of the Kavanagh building offers views of the Plaza San Martín, a steep park where office employees rest in the shelter of jacaranda and patriotic monuments. Tourists flock to the Florida pedestrian street for its leather goods boutiques, souvenir stalls and tango dancers.

Barrio de Recoleta (Stop 3)

Recoleta is a thriving area, ideal for walking, known for its Parisian-style terraced houses, ancient lavish palaces and luxurious boutiques. One of the main attractions is the Recoleta Cemetery, which houses extravagant tombs of national icons, such as Eva Perón. The National Museum of Fine Arts exhibits masterpieces by Argentine artists, and the Recoleta Cultural Center offers temporary avant-garde exhibitions. In the Plaza Francia, with lawn areas, there is a craft market on weekends.

 The Recoleta Cemetery is a famous cemetery in the city of Buenos Aires. It is located in the distinguished neighborhood of Recoleta and contains the tombs of many outstanding personalities of the country. It was inaugurated on November 17, 1822. It is one of the most popular tourist attractions of the city, famous for its numerous and imposing mausoleums and vaults adorned with marbles and sculptures. Its architectural value is a sample of the times when Argentina was an emerging economic power in the late nineteenth century, and the wealthiest families of the city began moving to the Recoleta area and building splendid pantheons in the cemetery.
