Buenos Aires, Argentina’s elegant, historic and cosmopolitan capital, is known as the “Paris of the South” due to its European atmosphere with glamorous avenues lined with fashionable shops and Parisian-style restaurants and cafes. Located on the western shore of the estuary of the Río de la Plata, Buenos Aires has many fascinating neighbourhoods to explore including the colourful and lively La Boca, home to art galleries and tango shows; San Telmo with its restored mansions and antique stores and Recoleta, the city’s most exclusive area.

Continue south on Avenida Libertador towards the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes (Fine Arts Museum), which boasts a great collection of Argentine art. We will visit one of the iconic cemeteries in the world, Recoleta Cemetery, the final resting place for the most celebrated figures of Argentina, including Eva Peron (Evita). Enjoy a walk through the cemetery streets to admire its beautiful, designed mausoleums. After visiting the cemetery, stroll through Avenida Alvear, home to the many architectonical mansions built during the Belle Époque, which have helped give Buenos Aires its nickname, the Paris of South America.
