Highlights

  • Discover Buenos Aires’s hot spots and off-the-beaten-path locations with the guidance of a local

  • Visit El Ateneo Grand Splendid, voted 2nd most beautiful bookstore on Earth by The Guardian

Itinerary

Your 4-5 hour Walking Tour Buenos Aires will begin at your hotel or a designated meeting spot. Start your adventure with a trip to Buenos Aires’s first public cemetery, Recoleta. This massive, elegant cemetery covers almost six hectares and contains spectacular crypts and mausoleums. Pass the resting places of national heroes, former presidents, politicians, military personnel, scientists, artists, and celebrities.

From there, check out Intendente Alvear Square, home to a regional artesanal fair. You’ll find high quality registered artesanal goods including jewelry, spices, carved wooden mates, instruments, and more.

Pass by the stunning white Iglesia del Pilar and walk the colorful Figueroa Alcorta Avenue bridge, where you’ll get great views of the city before stopping in at the El Ateneo Gran Splendid bookstore. Voted the 2nd most beautiful bookstore on earth by The Guardian, El Gran Splendid originally opened as a theater in 1919. It still includes the original Italian frescoes painted on the ceiling, second and third floor wrap-around balconies, and soft golden lights.

Later, walk Tango Pathway where the 8 basic steps of tango are painted on the sidewalk. If you’re feeling bold, give it a try!  Continue onward to Plaza de Mayo, Buenos Aires’s oldest city square. Dating back to the city’s foundation in 1580, the square is surrounded by stunning colonial-era historical and government buildings.

Continue to Plaza de la República, where you’ll stop to see the famous Buenos Aires Obelisk, towering into the sky. Nearby, pop into Tortoni Coffee Shop and order a coffee. If you have a sweet tooth, go for “The Special” — espresso hot chocolate with churros! Marvel at the marble floors, costumed waiters, and the classic art and photographs.

Coffee in hand, finish up your tour with a walk around Buenos Aires’s old Caminito neighborhood. With colorful murals, paintings, and sculptures, the city designated Caminito an official open air museum!
