Getting Around

The Micrcentro and surrounding neighborhoods hold most of Buneos Aires' major historical sights, and are easily explored on foot, but for trips to other neighborhoods, such as Palermo, Chinatown, La Boca or Recoleta, public transportation is cheap and easy to navigate.

The underground system, or Subte, is pretty extensive; it is made up of lines A,B,C,D, E and, for some reason, H. Linea D – the green line which runs through Palermo right up to Avenida Florida – will probably prove the most useful, though a trip on the A (blue) line is worth the time just to appreciate the old wooden carriages from the southern hemisphere's first ever underground system.

If you're planning to use the bus system, the pocket guide 'Guia T' (sold on the street and at newspaper kiosks) is invaluable. This option however, is not for the faint of heart, as driving styles, buses in particular, are adventurous (to put it mildly). If you're looking for a cheap tour of the city, take the 152 and stay on as it completes a loop of some of the most interesting sights and neighborhoods.

Taxis are relatively inexpensive, though do watch out for drivers returning false bills in change. Cycling is not recommended in this city.
