Day 12Buenos Aires City Tour
Encounter Buenos Aires, a city bursting with life and often called the “Paris of South America” due to its French-style architecture and culture. Wander along the widest avenue in the world, 9 de Julio Avenue, and see the distinctive Obelisk monument at its head. Visit the classic Colon Theater and French Embassy, the historic Plaza de Mayo and the regal Casa Rosada Presidential Palace. Next, visit the elegant Plaza San Martin and the busy financial district. Capture the essence of tango culture with a walk through the traditional neighborhoods of La Boca, San Telmo and Montserrat. On Sundays, spend a few hours here to browse the antique markets for a few gems from the past. Then wander through the trendy barrio of Palermo, discover the refined elegance of the Recoleta district and end the tour at the renovated Puerto Madero. Formerly Buenos Aires’ old port, it now boasts modern skyscrapers, a yacht club, several first-class restaurants and the architectural wonder of the Woman’s Bridge.
Afterward, transfer to the International Airport to catch a flight back home or continue your South America vacation.
