This is the answer to Paris' Pere Lachaise cemetery - many of the city's most famous are buried here. It's also considered one of the most beautiful cemeteries on the planet.
Argentina's the country closest to Antarctica, so you can expect it to get cold in the south, but Buenos Aires has a humid subtropical climate. So it's hot, but rain and hailstorms are to be expected.
Five days should be enough, but you should definitely incorporate it into a South American or Argentinian trip as a whole!

What people are saying about Buenos Aires
At our first day in Buenos Aires we decided to do a cooking class and were overwhelmed. We both like to cook and have eaten lots of empanadas already but never prepared them on ourselves. Learning how to prepare them was much easier as expected thanks to the great skills and patience of Shir - a young, open minded, very positive minded and interested girl. Shirl was already awaiting us once we arrived and then we first enjoyed some mate tea, she explained us a lot about the tradition, the rituals and some forth. In addition this allowed us to get to know each other. One could quickly realize that Shir is very interested in the exchange with us as well, which made the stay very pleasant. We then started to prepare the empanadas (vegetarian and meat) and it turned out that it was very simple. We enjoyed the combination of the cooking class in a private apartment and getting to know a lovely person that hopefully meet one day again. You're always welcome to visit us in Switzerland :-)
This cooking class was one of the highlights of my trip to Argentina! Shirly is a wonderful and kind person and makes you feel very welcome in her lovely home. I felt like I was cooking with a friend. She begins by making Argentinian mate tea for you to try as well as traditional alfajores, which are a type of pastry. She then shows you how to make both beef and corn empanadas completely from scratch, as well as crepes with dulce de leche for dessert. It is very hands on as you do most of the measuring, chopping, and preparing yourself with her guidance. After all the cooking is complete, you get to sit down to enjoy the food you just made. It was delicious! She also gives you a little homemade book with the recipes so that you can make them again on your own back home. The best part of the class was getting to know Shirly, learning about Argentina, and enjoying great conversation and food. She really has thought of everything to make it a lovely experience! Highly recommended!
It is a real special evening supported by an excellent and professional staff that entertain you for a couple hours of magic Argentinian emotions. My wife, my daughter and I enjoyed a lot the generous and tasty dinner, the good Argentinian wine, the short but nice tango lesson and the excellent tango show. It is an experience to be enjoyed for a first journey in Argentina. I highly recommend it.
The car was not the nice one featured in the ad but the driver’s used small family sedan. I don’t recall seeing the GRAYSLINE logo anywhere on it. I was looking for the company’s logo with my name on it. Instead My name was written on a sheet of paper driver was holding well away from the Arrivals hall. Not a professional look. Having said that, I enjoyed the drive and driver.
We went to the tango class at 7:30 before the 8:30 dinner and had a lot of fun. It was not intimidating at all. There were all levels and ages and you danced with whomever was available, man or woman, at the moment. The dinner at 8:30 was very good and better than expected. The show started around 9:30 or 10pm and was fantastic.
