Its elegant Beaux-Arts architecture, cosmopolitan atmosphere, sophisticated culinary and arts scenes, and exceptional friendliness make it one of the most inviting cities on earth. Stroll the grand avenues and the Plate River waterfront. Frequent old-world cafes and explore museums, galleries, historic monuments, antique shops and weekly markets. Take in a show at the famous Esquina Carlos Gardel tango palace. Visit the Evita Museum and opulent La Recoleta Cemetery. Celebrate the gaucho tradition on the pampas—Argentina’s vast, fertile plains—with a visit to the Estancia La Porteña, a historic complex on what is considered to be the most beautiful ranch in Argentina.
