DISCOVERING BUENOS AIRES. Buenos Aires is an exceptional, dynamic, sophisticated and overwhelming city. An exquisite combination of a European flair and the charm of Latin American cities. This tour provides an in-depth introduction to its history and architecture, the culture of its people, anecdotes and secrets. A five-hour ride through the paradigmatic areas of the city: the lively and frenzied downtown area, the “aristocratic” northern neighbourhoods and the working class districts in the south. The Buenos Aires highlights will be visited, acknowledging the transformation of a village that grew into a mega city.
BOCA JUNIORS-FUTBOL STADIUM VISIT La Boca is home to the world-famous Club Atletico Boca Juniors, the biggest football club in Argentina—and possibly the whole continent. In the bowels of this stadium is a new, high-tech museum, with 72 digital video monitors playing highlights of the best seasons, and a 360° video show, which supposedly feels a bit like you’re playing for the club yourself. Guided visit to Boca Juniors museum and the interior of the stadium. The Stadium was inaugurated in 1940 and it was popularly renamed as "La Bombonera" (The Chocolate Box).
At the entrance hall there is a mural painting by Benito Quinquela Martín, depicting the colours of the institution (blue and yellow). Another mural painting, by Pérez Celis, featuring the club and the neighbourhood characters can be seen on the external facade. The Museo de la Pasión Boquense (Boca Juniors Fans Museum) is located on Brandsen street, a short distance from the stadium. It exhibits a collection of objects and audiovisual production about the club history. We could stop for a short visit to the stadium divide the group up.

As a surprise, we can rent a picturesque private room in the back and show a short video on Evita’s life followed by a demonstration of tango. A couple of our skilled tango teachers will teach the group the first steps and introduce them to this fascinating dance. Our preferred way to arrive at the Café Tortoni for this pleasant visit is on a vintage subway which we take from Plaza de Mayo, Buenos Aires’ main square, for a brief trip of one station. After this amusing break, we are ready to continue on our City Tour to the next intriguing neighborhood in Buenos Aires.

THE ART OF MAKING PIZZA Step into a time warp and a grab a table at El Cuartito: one of Buenos Aires’ oldest and most popular pizzerias. With vintage boxing and football posters covering the walls, a frantic waiter running around the tables to take orders and deliver food, and the most delicious pizza I’ve eaten in quite some time, this incredible restaurant is one of the city’s best. El Cuartito has been in business since 1934. Found in Recoleta, it’s a busy place during lunch; you can either order at the counter or sit down for service. The pizza at El Cuartito is out of this world. At least, it is if you like cheese, mounds of heavy cheese dripping off every slice. You can combine different styles of pizza, and try out a variet

DINNER AT A CLOSED DOOR RESTAURANT
Eating in the privacy of a local home converted into a Close door restaurant. We have more than 45 selected restaurants in our city which we have personally visited them all. Having dinner away from the crowds is becoming more and more popular and it is for visitors a great way to learn about our culture. Closed-door restaurants, a.k.a. restaurantes a puertas cerradas, are big in Buenos Aires,. Never heard of them?
Menus usually change weekly or even daily according to the whims of the chef. They also almost never offer you a choice of dishes; you just get what the chef is cooking on the night you go, which is actually kind of liberating. The result of all of this is something more intimate and social than a regular restaurant. Going to a closed-door restaurant usually involves meeting and chatting with the chef and the other guests, rather than just eating and dashing. There’s much more a feeling of a shared experience with your fellow diners. Also, the cuisine they offer is often a lot more creative and adventurous than your standard Buenos Aires restaurant fare (which makes a welcome change from meat-and-Malbec).

VISIT TO EVITA MUSEUM is a vital experience when visiting Buenos Aires. A most controversial character in Argentina’s history, Eva Perón is a myth. The museum is a place where people feel, learn and understand. For those who don’t know about her. For those who know her and want to know more. A museum designed for Argentines and foreigners to understand a fundamental part of Argentine History. On the 50th anniversary of her death, July 26, 2002, EVITA MUSEUM opened its doors, a place that tells about the life and work of one of the most important women in Argentine history and shows the truth with historical rigor. Through a unique heritage, visitors will be able to know about her life, the social reality and the international context of those days so as to have a better understanding of the country at that time.
The Museum is located in the building that housed the Temporary Home nº 2 of the Eva Perón Social Aid Foundation, and has been declared National Historical Place by Parliament. The cultural center is complemented with a Café Restó and a Souvenir Store.
THE RECOLETA CEMENTERY has been compared to the Pére Lachaise of Paris, being one of the fundamental architectural pieces of Buenos Aires city. It represents the cornerstone of the Recoleta area of Barrio Norte, and a great example of its beauty. It has 4700 crypts, distributed in a map of squares and wide inner streets, setting up an area of 50.000 square meters.
The Recoleta cemetery is an example of great and different architectural styles; many leaders of the Argentine history are buried there, between exquisite statues, streets and works of art that seem to struggle amongst themselves for unique marvel and beauty. This makes the cemetery become a special walk for tourists, since the fact that it is a cemetery does not affect the freshness of this kind of outdoor art gallery. The entrance consists of neoclassic doors and high Greek columns. Its mausoleums are marked with the name of the family carved in their ornamental fronts, plus bronze plaques which indicate individual family members; such as in the case of many Argentine presidents. fet breakfast at the Hotel Restaurant.

COLONIA DEL SACRAMENTO FD: Colonia is a small city founded by the Portuguese in 1680, at a time when Spain and Portugal were in the midst of confrontations.

DINNER IN SUCRE RESTAURANT
From the fires of grills, rotisseries, large ovens, and expansive cook tops, all under the direction of Chef Fernando Trocca, come a wide range of foods that are difficult to characterize other than to call them modern Argentine. The ingredients are certainly local in focus – lots of delicious beef and lamb plus some seafood – but with splashes of international flavours, style, and presentation. One may not visit Argentina looking for refined food – this is certainly the land of big steaks, after all – but it’s impossible not to appreciate the detail of flavour, texture, presentation, and quality of ingredients at Sucre, especially when so many restaurants in town are lacking on more than a few of those fronts.
