Today you'll get in direct touch with the town where the tango was born. Begin on Avenida de Mayo that runs into the Plaza de Mayo, which is surrounded by the Casa Rosada (government house), the Metropolitan Cathedral, and the Cabildo (first City Hall, built during Spanish rule). At the other end of Avenida de Mayo, you'll find the Congress building, and then continue to San Telmo, the best kept historical neighborhood and eldest district of Buenos Aires (no stop).
Your next stop is La Boca, a most colorful area. At the famous Caminito Street, you'll meet artists offering their tango pictures. Passing the Colon Theatre, one of the world's best known opera houses and the cultural pride of the “portenos" (as the inhabitants of Buenos Aires are commonly called), we'll continue to Palermo with its beautiful parks, the city zoo, botanical garden, Argentine horse track, and National Polo Fields.
At the end of the tour, we'll visit the Recoleta area, one of the city's most glamorous neighborhoods. At the Recoleta Cemetery--the center of this aristocratic district--you'll find the grave of Eva Duarte, who became famous as Eva Perón (Evita), as well as the Municipal Cultural Center, elegant boutiques, and excellent restaurants surrounded by centennial trees.
