Buenos Aires

Among the richest cities in the world during its early 20th century heyday, Buenos Aires is South America’s second largest city and without question one of its most culturally fascinating.

Nicknamed the ‘Paris of the South’, the city feels more European than Latin American, with wide avenues and an eclectic blend of baroque and neoclassical architecture. The city’s ‘café culture’ is also one of its defining elements, and is another aspect of Buenos Aires’ lifestyle reminiscent of that of the French capital. A cultural center brimming with museums, art galleries and live music, there is also plenty to occupy daytime and evening, along with a passion for sport that rivals any on the planet. In addition to rugby and polo, in which Argentina’s national side is the world’s strongest, Buenos Aires is home to the highest concentration of professional football clubs on the planet. Famed as one of the globe’s finest leather producers, Argentina’s capital also has much to offer in terms of shopping. With a wide selection of small boutique shops and large, stylish malls, visitors to the city are certain not to leave empty handed.
