Its antique markets, candle street lighting (known as ‘faroles’), cobblestones, old buildings with original facades and décor, all add to the uniquely bohemian atmosphere.

Then take the bus to La Boca neighborhood, known for Boca Juniors' stadium and the Caminito colorful street. Get enchanted by tango dancing and singing and learn how tango, football, and different immigration influences have made Buenos Aires one of the most irresistible cities in the world.
