Touching Down in the Capital of Argentina
Early this morning, you’ll find yourself on the outskirts of breathtaking Buenos Aires, the capital of arresting Argentina and one of the great cities of South America. A private driver will be waiting for you at the airport, ready to transport you to your perfectly located and luxurious hotel, filled with modern amenities and resplendent with Latin American charm. Take some time to relax and recover from your long journey before setting out to see the sights of this magical metropolis for the first time.
The afternoon features a fully guided tour of Buenos Aires, showing the best of its various barrios (neighborhoods) and giving you unique insight into its indescribable and undeniable allure. Make your way to the opulent city center, where you’ll find the famous Plaza de Mayo, the center of Argentine political activism for more than a century. Nearby is the iconic Casa Rosada, the “Pink House” that serves as the executive mansion for the President of Argentina.
Continue to the charming neighborhood of San Telmo, whose cobblestone streets echo a decidedly artistic feel, before turning to the boisterous and colorful barrio (neighborhood) of La Boca, where the air is filled with the shouts of street vendors and the graceful forms of tango dancers. You’ll also get a chance to see the newly restored and renovated port at Puerto Madero and the stately streets of Palermo, where you’ll find some of the finest shops and restaurants in all of Buenos Aires.
