The most European city in South America - Buenos Aires - has been enjoying a revival in the last few years with the rise of hip new neighbourhoods and the inception of trendy hotels and restaurants. Luring visitors straight off their Buenos Aires flights with its grand avenues and magnificent architecture, the city rivals any other cosmopolitan city with its charm and sophistication.
The best way to really explore the city is on foot. Stroll through the cobbled streets and stop by Plaza de Mayo the most important spot in the city. It was here in 1810 where the May Revolution began and where the beloved Evita greeted the crowds from the balcony of the famous Casa Rosada.
Porteños (Buenos Aires residents) are passionate by nature, especially when it comes to their football and tango. La Bombonera stadium is where all the boisterous games take place and is home to Boca Juniors, the team that launched Diego Maradona’s career. To experience authentic tango head to San Telmo and walk in to one of its many Milongas (tango halls) that line the streets. Lessons are offered by professional Milongueros, or wait for a quick nod from another dancer – that’s the unspoken invitation for the next dance.
