Buenos Aires is known of the “Paris of South America” due to its café culture, beautiful architecture and overall European vibe. A trip to this city will give you plenty of opportunities to try Argentinian steak, wine and of course, tango dancing! Here are some of the top things we recommend to do in Buenos Aires:
Casa Rosada – Casa Rosada means “Pink House” and the building gets its name due to its pink facade. This opulent mansion is the executive mansion and office of the President of Argentina, and where Eva Perón stood on the balcony to famously addressed her crowds of supporters.
San Telmo Market – Open daily, the San Telmo market opened its doors in 1897 and offers everything from antique furniture to olives and spices. On Sundays, The Feria de San Telmo takes place from 10am to 4pm and is one of the most popular attractions in Buenos Aires. Over 12,000 people visit this street bazaar to buy local snacks and browse over 270 stalls selling clothing and local art.
National History Museum – The Museo Histórico Nacional is a museum dedicated to the history of Argentina, which was created in 1880 after half a century of civil wars, with the objective of unifying the young nation and creating a sense of national identity. Inside the museum you can see objects relating to the May Revolution of 1810 and the Argentine War of Independence, including paintings, flags, weapons and uniforms.Entry is free on Wednesdays, and free every day for pensioners and under 12s.
Recoleta Cemetery – You might feel like visiting a cemetery is a little bit morbid but this cemetery is the burial place for people such as Eva Perón and the presidents of Argentina.
You don’t need a visa to enter Argentina as a tourist if you’re travelling on a British passport. Your passport should be valid for the proposed duration of your stay and you’ll be granted a period of 90 days upon entry.
Buenos Aires seasons are the opposite of in the United Kingdom. January is the hottest month, when temperatures soar to above 25 degrees Celsius, while July is the coldest month when temperatures hover around 12 degrees Celsius. If you’re travelling in winter you’ll definitely want to pack some warmer clothes as things can get a bit chilly.
