  • Buenos Aires Sightseeing Experience with lunch at typical bodegón –
    Premium:
    Buenos Aires is one of the most fascinating cities in both Latin America and the
    world. Be it for its splendid and varied architecture, with its old Colonial buildings,
    French palaces and state-of-the-art skyscrapers; for its vibrant nightlife and
    endless cultural options; or maybe just for the rich identity of the Porteños, who
    proudly bear the European heritage of their ancestors, more and more visitors are
    coming to visit.
    Visit Plaza de Mayo, the city’s foundational site and witness of our country’s
    political history. There we’ll visit the Pink House, our Presidential Palace, the
    Cabildo, our primitive town hall, and the Neoclassical-style Metropolitan
    Cathedral, the final home of Argentina’s founding father, José de San Martín.
    We’ll come across sumptuous French palaces again in Palermo Chico, the area of
    Palermo best known for its large parks designed by celebrated landscape
    architects, such as the illustrious Frenchman Charles Thays.
    In Retiro and Recoleta, we will learn about the dream of our local aristocrats in
    the late 19th and early 20th centuries, when they sought to build a small-scale
    Paris in the heart of Buenos Aires. After visiting the impressive Plaza San Martín,
    where Jorge Luis Borges used to take his walks, we’ll stroll down Avenida Alvear,
    chosen by the world’s most distinguished brands to install their exclusive boutiques, looking up to see the many wonderful French-style palaces which
    nowadays house a number of embassies. Then we’ll visit the Basílica de Nuestra
    Señora del Pilar, one of the city’s oldest churches, which dates to the Colonial era.
    Finally, we’ll admire the celebrated Recoleta Cemetery, a true labyrinth of ornate
    mausoleums. We’ll make a stop at Eva Peron’s grave, one of the country’s most
    recognizable icons.
    We’ll then head for San Telmo, one of the oldest neighborhoods in Buenos Aires.
    It used to be the residential district favored by the upper class until the late 19th
    century when a yellow fever epidemic caused the wealthier families to leave
    northwards. The area was marginalized until the 1970s when many artists and
    artisans came to San Telmo to install their workshops. Nowadays, thanks to its
    amazing architecture and hip atmosphere, this ancient neighborhood is really
    blooming. We’ll walk its cobbled streets, where the city’s Colonial past seems to
    come back to life, making a stop at Plaza Dorrego, best known for its traditional
    antiques fair, held every Sunday.
    Leaving San Telmo behind, we’ll continue southwards to La Boca, one of the city’s
    most authentic and charming neighbourhoods. It is a working-class district,
    heavily shaped by Italian immigrants who came to our country in large numbers
    during the last quarter of the 19th century. Here, we’ll make a special visit to the
    mythical Caminito Street, which sums up everything that gives La Boca its
    distinctive spirit: the strong passion for soccer, the heavy presence of art and
    color, and the Tango-esque atmosphere.
    Enjoy lunch at La Brigada Steakhouse or similar. La Brigada Steak House is a
    landmark as a restaurant as a typical Argentina Parrillada. The Steak House is
    located in the bohemian district of San Telmo, known for its historic cobbled
    streets and wonderful street market. It has one of the best steaks in Buenos Aires
    and a very complete Argentina Wine List. The restaurant decoration is dominated
    by gaucho and Folklore local thematic
