Buenos Aires is the capital of Argentina and a great city to begin your cruise from, particularly if you have a couple of days before your cruise to explore this beautiful city. As you wander the streets you’ll be marvelled by the magnificent architecture, not just of the palaces but of even the most low-key of buildings. There’s a vibrant street-art scene, and you’ll find colourful murals around every corner.
A walking tour is a great way to explore Buenos Aires and to visit the main points of interest such as the iconic city square; Plaza de Mayo, The ornate theatre; Teatro Colon and the Obelisco de Buenos Aires; a 67m-high obelisk.
Buenos Aires is a city that doesn’t sleep. Restaurants don’t get busy until at least 9pm and bars and nightclubs remain open until sunrise. Home to some out-of-this-world restaurants, popular favourites in this area are steaks washed down with lots of Malbec. If you have room, indulge in a late-night ice cream.
