Going downtown is treat for history lovers. La Plaza de Mayo is not only the location of the Casa Rosada, the famous pink Argentine seat of power, but it is also surrounded by some of the main monuments and points of interests of the city. These include the Metropolitan Cathedral and El Cabildo de Buenos Aires, a former town hall turned into a museum commemorating the country’s revolution.

Corrientes and Nueve de Julio streets are perfect taking for a stroll, with their charming theaters, traditional coffee shops, cinemas, pizza shops and bookstores. The obelisk - the magnificent icon of the city - rises at the intersection of these two main arteries. And as if this weren’t enough, El Teatro Colón, ranked the third best opera house in the world by National Geographic, can be found on Nueve de Julio.
You can enjoy intriguing and modern architecture at El Puente de la Mujer at Puerto Madero, the city’s port. You can also venture into El Ateneo Grand Splendid, a theater converted into the world’s second most beautiful bookshop, according to The Guardian.
The neighborhood of La Boca, popularized by the soccer stadium La Bombonera, is a must-see, with its brightly colored alleyway, referred to as Caminito.
If nature is your thing, El Parque 3 de Febrero is a charming complex of parks, groves, lakes and rose gardens that visitors should relish, especially in the spring.
Argentina is known globally for its beef and wine, and a long-time favorite for visitors is La Estancia. You can then make your way to Plaza Serrano in the Palermo neighborhood of the city and grab a drink at one of its many inviting pubs. And while you’re in that part of town, no trip to Buenos Aires would be complete without going to one of the city’s many exclusive nightclubs until the break of dawn.
