If you’re planning to visit this wonderful city, here’s a super cool itinerary to help you get to know, if not all, at least the main tourist attractions and try to make the most of what this place has to offer.
# HOW MANY DAYS TO STAY?
As I said, Buenos Aires is so rich in attractions that it will surprise you with every return visit. You can’t “list” finite topics like “What to do in 1 day or 2, 3…”.
What I can say is that you should try to do a lot of research into what you’re interested in seeing and put together an itinerary based on the number of days you intend to stay.
I recommend a minimum of 4 days to be able to enjoy at least the main sights, BUT if you have less time, don’t worry; you can still put together a nice itinerary, get your legs ready, and make the most of it.
# WHERE TO STAY?
In my opinion, the best neighborhoods to stay in are Palermo, Recoleta, and San Telmo.
They concentrate on a lot of activities, and many tourist attractions can be visited on foot, as they are very close to each other.
In fact, when I went for the first time, I did La Boca, Caminito and San Telmo on foot.
So, the tip is: once you’ve put together your itinerary, based on the tips I’m going to give you here, see where most of the things you want to see are and then research accommodation in that neighborhood.
– PALERMO: considered the “most” of Buenos Aires, the most charming, eclectic, chic, tree-lined… it is divided into Palermo Soho, Hollywood, Botanico, Viejo and Chico. You can go shopping with luxurious options, enjoy the tranquillity of its parks and enjoy the cuisine of stylish restaurants and cafés.
– RECOLETA: one of the coolest neighborhoods I consider, super central, with beautiful parks, great museums, restaurants and cafés, shopping, a market, as well as La Recoleta Cemetery, where Evita Perón’s tomb is located. Perfect for touring on foot or by bike.
– SAN TELMO: This is one of the most charming and oldest neighborhoods, super cute with its cobbled streets, giving it a more bucolic feel. It offers everything from antique stores, such as the traditional San Telmo Market, to traditional and modern cafés, bookshops, and museums. I highly recommend a night out in San Telmo, with bars offering happy hour and a small tango show for the public.
Here are some tips on places by neighborhood so that you can work out the logistics of your entire itinerary, making the most of your time and fitting in at least the most unmissable places.
I always use the “technique” of allowing myself to walk the streets, let’s say, a little aimlessly, just for a few minutes or even hours if I have time, to get a feel for the city and its daily life, as there are many places that aren’t mentioned as main tourist attractions but which end up being a personal “find”. What’s more, you get to experience the city, because there’s no point in just traveling to see a certain place. What’s more important than that is to breathe in the journey, let it enter you and thus savor it in all its senses.
