Buenos Aires Highlights - Highlight Buenos Aires - Argentina

The main things to see in B.A. are easily accessed on foot, by the underground Subte system, or, if you're feeling adventurous, on the bus (you're looking for a 'collectivo').

Start with the Microcentro and nearby Montserrat and Congreso, where you'll find Plaza de Mayo - named after the month of the city's founding – home to the Casa Rosada, the seat of government and place where Evita gave her 'don't cry for me Argentina' speech. Avenida Florida begins at the Plaza, and stretches right down to Plaza San Martin and Avenida Santa Fe, one of the city's main thoroughfares.

Northwest of the center, a must-visit is Recoleta Cemetary, where Eva's body – along with the wealthy and elite of the city – is buried. This neighborhood is also the home of MALBA, the stunning Museum of Latin American Art, definitely worth a visit even if it's just to spot the greats like Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo.

On the other side of town, La Boca is the proud home of La Bombonera Stadium, home to one of the city's most legendary football clubs, Boca Juniors. The colorful character of this working-class neighborhood is best displayed along El Caminito, a pedestrian street lined with brightly painted corrugated tin houses and numerous tango dancers.

On Sunday, the San Te;mo market is not to be missed – bargain for antiques and souvenirs or sip a cafe cortado at the heart of things in Plaza Dorrego.

In Recoleta, stroll the quiet, leafy streets and admire the impressive European architecture, while Palermo is worth a visit either for its peaceful parks or feisty nightlife.
