With its wide boulevards, leafy parks, impressive architecture and vibrant nightlife, Buenos Aires is the most European of all Latin American cities. You’ll never be short of a cultural outing, as the city offers countless art galleries (try the minimalist MALBA art gallery or contemporary Fundación Proa), theatres and museums, plus plenty of chic shops to give your credit card a workout. For bargain-hunting, opt for the San Telmo Market in Plaza Dorrego on Sundays to buy colourful tango memorabilia and vintage trinkets. For history-lovers, the Evita Museum charts the rise of Argentina’s beloved politician.
By night, be sure to sample some of the legendary Argentine beef and red wine at rock bottom prices in one of the many churrascarias around town. But be warned, dinner starts late in Buenos Aires – if you’re sitting down before 10pm you might be dining alone. If you still have space for dessert, head to Freddo or Volta ice-cream parlours for some top-notch gelato.
For an after-dinner treat, head downtown to sample some sizzling tango in the elegant Confitería Ideal with evening dancing to a live orchestra. For a cultural outing, head to the Teatro Colón for an evening of opera or ballet.
