- We visit the Palermo neighbourhood, the largest in Buenos Aires. With its elegant buildings, mostly embassies, consulates and museums, and tree-lined roads, it has a truly unique atmosphere. We admire the most interesting landmarks in this part of the city such as Parque 3 febrero, better known as 'Bosques de Palermo', which covers 34,000 square metres and boasts a lovely rose garden, the botanical garden, the Galileo Galilei planetarium, the zoological garden, the Monument to the Magna Carta and a huge golf course.
- We then continue with a visit to the exterior of the National Congress Building, seat of the Senate and Chamber of Deputies, and of the monumento a los Dos Congresos, celebrating the two congresses (1813 and 1816) that sanctioned Argentina’s independence.
- We go on to Plaza de Mayo, one of the oldest squares which is the cultural, political and historical heart of the city where we can admire the Casa Rosada, residence of the President of the Republic, and the Cabildo, a fascinating colonial building which is now the National Museum of the May Revolution.
- We cross Plaza de la República, hub of the city, intersection between avenida Corrientes and avenida 9 de Julio and location of the Obelisk built to celebrate the fourth centenary of the founding of the city.
- We arrive at the famous La Boca neighbourhood, the first port in Buenos Aires, which grew into a blue collar neighbourhood, where most of the Italian and Spanish immigrants (mainly from Genoa) who arrived during the 19th century looking for fortune lived. The neighbourhood is characterised by coloured houses decorated with flags, statues and posters of Diego Armando Maradona. The most famous street of the neighbourhood is Caminito, flanked by houses painted in lively colours and stalls run by local artists and artisans.
- We enjoy a lovely lunch with typical Argentinian dishes, after which we immerse ourselves into the magical atmosphere of tango. Originally from Argentina, tango is known and loved all over the world. Before becoming famous, this dance was prohibited because of its sensuality and passion. Nowadays, however, it represents the image and most authentic character of Buenos Aires. We attend an extraordinary variety show illustrating the most varied musical, dancing and orchestral expressions of tango.
- At the end of the show, there will be some free time to walk around Florida Street, one of the main shopping* streets in Buenos Aires.
