Can’t handle eating any more steak? Walk it off while checking out Buenos Aires’ must-see landmarks. The lovely streets of Buenos Aires are ideal for walking and absorbing the city’s spirit. History buffs will love Plaza de Mayo, home to the Metropolitan Cathedral and the Casa Rosada, the presidential palace, where you can take a guided tour. On a leisurely stroll through upscale Recoleta, you can gaze at French-style architecture and pay homage to Argentina’s great figures at Recoleta Cemetery, where Evita’s tomb still draws fans who deposit flowers. Other areas that are pleasant to wander around include Caminito, an alley lined with brightly-colored houses in La Boca, and the bohemian cobblestone streets of San Telmo, where you’ll be surrounded by artists and street performers.
If you’re an opera aficionado, make sure to check the schedule at the Colón Theater before your visit—you might catch a memorable performance. Art lovers will find much to admire at galleries museums like MALBA and galleries like Fundación Proa. You can even take a tour of the city’s street art with Graffiti Mundo. Buenos Aires is also king when it comes to free activities such as music festivals and gallery openings. T+L’s travel guide will clue you in on the most fun things to do in Buenos Aires.
