3 Days: Essential Buenos Aires
The perfect Buenos Aires itinerary focuses on shopping and dining, as well as the city’s art treasures and sporting events. Here is just one example of what our destination experts can create for you.
Explore the Belle Époque architecture of Recoleta before visiting the neighborhood’s cemetery where famous locals (including Eva Perón) rest in Baroque mausoleums. Then, return to Avenida Alvear, which is Buenos Aires’ version of Madison Avenue. In the afternoon, visit La Boca, known for its painted houses, San Telmo and the waterfront. Enjoy an afternoon tea and siesta back at your hotel before getting ready for dinner and a concert at Teatro Colón.
Start the morning at the Museum of Decorative Arts, located in a palace still furnished as it was when the Argentinian high society wined and dined here in the 1920s. Then, continue on to MALBA, which houses works by Latin American greats such as Rivera, Kahlo and Botero. Tour Palermo, a trendy district for galleries and avant-garde designers and restaurateurs, in the afternoon. This evening, book an exciting dinner-tango performance.
If you are there on a weekend, visit the Feria de Mataderos, a gaucho fair, or the flea and antiques market in San Telmo. Stroll down Defensa, from Humberto Primo to Avenida Independencia, and browse the shops for silver, furniture and treasures imported from Europe. Don’t miss Aux Charpentiers, specializing in authentic gaucho bombachas in all colors and fabrics. In the afternoon, attend a polo match before returning to the city for a local dinner.
