Visit Plaza de Mayo, the city’s foundational site and witness of our country’s political history. There we’ll visit the Pink House, our Presidential Palace, the Cabildo, our primitive town hall, and the Neoclassical-styled Metropolitan Cathedral, the final home of Argentina’s founding father, José de San Martín. We’ll then head for San Telmo, one of the oldest neighbourhoods in Buenos Aires. It used to be the residential district favoured by the upper class until late 19th century when a yellow fever epidemic caused the wealthier families to leave northwards. The area was marginalized until the 1970s when many artists and artisans came to San Telmo to install their workshops. Nowadays, thanks to its amazing architecture and hip atmosphere, this ancient neighbourhood is really blooming. Eat like a local experience! In this tour we will make 6 informal gastronomic stops, to some spots that can´t be missed!

The best partner for this, would be a glass of Malbec Wine, Why not? > Moving to desserts, we will visit an ice cream shop for a fresh dessert. > Afterwards, we will probably don´t want a miss a typical "cubanito" with dulce de leche, back in the market. > We can´t end this culinary experience without a coffee in some enchanting corner in San Telmo!
Leaving San Telmo behind, we’ll continue southwards to La Boca, one of the city’s most authentic and charming neighbourhoods. It is a working class district, heavily shaped by Italian immigrants who came to our country in large numbers during the last quarter of the 19th century. Here, we’ll make a visit to the mythical Caminito Street, which sums up everything that gives La Boca its distinctive spirit: the strong passion for soccer, the heavy presence of art and colour, and the Tango-esque atmosphere. At last, we`ll pass through Puerto Madero, the latest addition to the city’s barrios. In 1991, its huge warehouses and silos were remodelled and redesigned, to finally integrate the river to the city and to create a new corporative, residential, hotel and gastronomically district, which has become the playground for the pretty Porteños and the international jet-set.

Buenos Aires is one of the most fascinating cities in both Latin America and the world. Be it for its splendid and varied architecture, with its old Colonial buildings, French palaces and state-of-the-art skyscrapers; for its vibrant nightlife and endless cultural options; or maybe just for the rich identity of the Porteños, who proudly bear the European heritage of their ancestors, more and more visitors are coming to visit. In Retiro and Recoleta, we will learn about the dream of our local aristocrats in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, when they sought to build a small-scale Paris in the heart of Buenos Aires. After visiting the impressive Plaza San Martín, where Jorge Luis Borges used to take his walks, we’ll stroll down Avenida Alvear, chosen by the world’s most distinguished brands to install their exclusive boutiques, looking up to see the many wonderful French-style palaces which nowadays house a number of embassies. Then we’ll visit the Basilica de Nuestra Señora del Pilar, one of the city’s oldest churches, which dates to the Colonial era. Finally, we’ll admire the celebrated Recoleta Cemetery, a true labyrinth of ornate mausoleums. We’ll make a stop at Eva Peron’s grave, one of the country’s most recognizable icons. We’ll come across sumptuous French palaces again in Palermo Chico, the area of Palermo best known for its large parks designed by celebrated landscape architects, such as the illustrious Frenchman Charles Thays.
Finally, we will enjoy a nice lunch at Casa Cavia.
Entering Casa Cavia is embarking upon a remarkable space, a world blending the past, present, and future to delight the senses. The prestigious London firm Kallos Turin has recreated the historical manor house with a modern air. Among the weekly offerings is an exquisite tea table adorned with a sophisticated floral arrangement, a lunch inspired by selected authors, a sampling of drinks that seem to conspire with the scents of perfumes.

In the space previously occupied by a courtyard, there is a winter garden with glass walls and a ceiling that houses a bright and spectacular lounge, where light colours predominate. In the centre, the big star is a large rectangular bar, in which beats the heart of the kitchen that works in full rhythm. Conceptually, Marti is a restaurant that proposes a direct exchange between diners and chefs, where you can see the work of all professionals from any seat at the bar. The wine list is a great synthesis of the best of modern Argentine wine, which is authored by sommelier Martín Bruno.
