Buenos Aires is unique in South America and, in many respects the world, with stunning ‘euro-tectures’ of a bygone era, which signposts the various regional power influences, the tastes of the elite travelling classes, and more importantly, the mass immigration of the nineteenth and early twentieth Century.
Home to the Rioplatense baroque style, French neo-classical Corbusier rationalism, art noveau, art deco and even Cesar Pelli’s skyscrapers, the architecture and monuments are towering guides that with a little help tell Buenos Aires and Argentina’s rich social history.
Our Buenos Aires walking tour starts in the heart of the city, in the main square of Plaza de Mayo, scene of successive revolutions and the Peron’s address to the nation. From the old to the new, we traverse the city from La Boca to San Telmo, from Puerto Madero to Palermo and finish in Recoleta.
La Boca is home of Buenos Aires’ sultry tango sounds and home to the bohemia; SanTelmo is the oldest part of the city, witness and stage to most of Buenos Aires’ proud history; hip Palermo with its galleries and design shops combines fashion, commerce and a large measure of fun; then off to Recoleta, the Paris of South America, with Its rococo style mansions, neo classical palaces and Alvear Avenue’s luxury shops to finish in your tour.
The tour can include lunch and will most definitely finish at Recoleta’s café La Biela for an espresso and people watching.
Your host will help you plan your program according to taste and budget.
