Cultural capital of South America, Buenos Aires remains one of the largest cities on the continent, serving as a point of departure for exploring the rest of the country.
You've added Teatro Colon, Piazzolla Tango, Recoleta Mall, and other attractions to your itinerary. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Museo Nacional De Arte Decorativo and Libreria Cuspide, Buenos Aires. Popular historic sites such as Palacio de Aguas Corrientes and Plaza Francia are in your itinerary. There's still lots to do: explore the world behind art at Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires, take in the views from Puente de la Mujer, stroll around Rosedal De Palermo, and pause for some serene contemplation at Catedral Metropolitana.
