The stunning, sexy, and sometimes seedy Argentine capital is a city of immigrants—Spanish, Italian, German, Jewish, Arab, and many more. They call themselves Porteños, people of the port, and over the centuries have cultivated their artistry, architecture, and cuisine right here in Buenos Aires. Together they have dominated the World Cup, invented tango, given the world icons including Eva Perón and Che Guevara, and proven that copious amounts of red wine and steak are key to a happy, healthy lifestyle. Neighborhoods from posh Recolleta and hip Palermo, to bohemian San Telmo, all buzz with energy, and are just part of this vibrant city sure to rank among your favorites on this journey.
Interesting Fact: Avenida 9 de Julio, the city’s main thoroughfare, is the widest street in the world with an imposing sixteen lanes. It typically takes two lights for pedestrians to cross.
