Palermo, which can be subdivided into Palermo Hollywood, Palermo Viejo, Palermo Soho and Palermo Chico, is the largest and greenest region of Buenos Aires, and has just about everything one could ask for in a neighborhood. Wide avenues meet quiet cobbled streets lined with flowering balconies and surrounded by sprawling pretty parks and gardens. The neighborhood houses numerous fascinating museums and pretty parks - many ways to while away a relaxing afternoon.

Palermo also boasts the trendiest and most diverse of Buenos Aires’ boutiques, bars, restaurants and cafes, many of which can be found in the hip subdivision known as Palermo Viejo, an ever popular district further divided into Palermo Soho and Palermo Hollywood. Vast expanses of park and residences make up the rest of pretty Palermo and the wealthy Palermo Chico. One thing’s for sure about Palermo: You’ll leave fashion-forward. From neon spandex and metallics to punk-rock hairdos and mini-skirts, you can have first grabs at the goods by Argentine designers.

But Palermo isn’t just for the fashion savvy. If you grow tired of the traditional steak and empanadas, Palermo offers a variety of chic restaurants covering a range of international cuisine—from Thai to Japanese to Mexican to American. Part of Palermo’s allure is the adventure of seeking out its hidden treasures, but just to give a little insight, here’s a rundown of each district:

Palermo Viejo (old Palermo) is an enchanting district, once home to famous figures like Che Guevara and Jorge Luis Borges. Spanish-style architecture dominates tiny streets packed with even tinier boutiques. Palermo Chico, the wealthiest part of Palermo, is a predominantly residential area. If you’re looking to stay in style, check out apartments here. Palermo Soho and Palermo Hollywood comprise Palermo Viejo, making up the fashion and design district of the city. A bit cheaper than either Soho or Chico, Hollywood also has tons of restaurants and is a popular draw for the young crowd. Hit the pavement and dive into the latest fashion trends or head inside and dig into the trendiest culinary dish—whatever you do, don’t pass up the chance to check out Buenos Aires’ Palermo district.

Other neighborhoods in Buenos Aires: Villa Crespo, Puerto Madero, Barracas, La Boca, Once, San Telmo, Recoleta/Barrio Norte, Caballito, Recoleta and Tigre.
