Buenos Aires & Tango Experience
Day 1 Buenos Aires
You will be met at the airport and transferred to your Buenos Aires hotel.
Day 2-3 Buenos Aires (2B,1D)
You will be picked up from your hotel early this morning for a sightseeing tour of the city. First you will be heading to the colourful and vibrant district of La Boca. This neighbourhood was originally populated by Italian immigrants who painted their houses with bright colours, creating what is now a classic image of Buenos Aires. You will then head to bohemian San Telmo and the historic Plaza de Mayo, where you will see the Government House (Pink House), the Metropolitan Cathedral and the ancient City-Hall, seat of the former Spanish Viceroys. In the evening enjoy dinner followed by a tango show. The first Tango emerged at the end of 19th Century from a mixture of various rhythms which were danced in the poorer quarters. Forbidden in the beginning for its enormous sensuality, it is now not only part of the background music of Buenos Aires, but is its most important icon. Enjoy a special “porteña” music night at one of the excellent tango places, where typical songs and dances are performed.
Day 4 Buenos Aires (1B)
Spend today at leisure! You could explore the nearby fashionable district of Recoleta, with a scent of French charm, with a visit to its artistic cemetery, where Evita Peron's tomb is, among others of prominent local characters. Or head to funky Palermo, with it's spacious parks. Enjoy the chance to explore on your own - find yourself a great little café for some of the best people-watching around, or perhaps enjoy the city’s many museums, world-renowned shopping or one of several optional day tours.
