Buenos Aires

Microcentro

Buenos Aires, Argentina

Here, the Casa Rosada—the president’s offices—and the colonial-era Cabildo government house bookend Buenos Aires’s most famous square: the Plaza de Mayo. The pedestrian-only Calle Florida can feel a bit like Manhattan's 34th Street, albeit with outdoor cafés and tango demonstrations. Though there is a surfeit of cheap clothes and electronics, the area is not without serious shopping interest. The beaming face of Carlos Gardel, the unrivaled king of Argentine tango, smiles down from windows all along Suipacha, B.A.’s tango-supply street. (Stick to the end of the street closer to Diagonal Norte; as you walk farther up, the shopping scene devolves into toilet seats and girdles.)
