Buenos Aires: 3 Day Itinerary

Buenos Aires: 3 Day Itinerary, Buenos Aires, Argentina (B)

"The Paris of South America", Buenos Aires definitely stands out and gives you that feeling of being in a European capital. In between the grandeur of a big city and the charming decadence of Latin America, the Argentinian capital is well worth a visit. 

Even though there's plenty to do in Buenos Aires and endless options for day trips nearby, the historic centre is quite compact and most landmarks are located within walking distance, which makes it a very easy city to navigate in spite of its size. Here's the 3 day itinerary that I followed on my recent visit, I hope you enjoy!

We thought there was no better way to get to know Buenos Aires than starting the day visiting its oldest barrio (neighborhood). Characterized by its colonial buildings, in San Telmo you won't really find any well-known monuments, but I'm sure you'll enjoy its cafes and local ambiance.

If you're lucky enough to be there on a Saturday, there is an antique fair that goes from Plaza Dorrego along Calle La Defensa. Here, you'll be able to buy pretty much anything you can imagine, a good option if you're looking for some peculiar souvenirs. ......
