Overview



You will regret not walking this district with someone in the know while mixing wine and art.

Learn about the history of Graffitti or 'Urban Art' in Buenos Aires plus get to know the people behind the art. Increase your knowledge of different techniques in Urban Art.

Palermo is a sprawling district in Buenos Aires that has been subtly divided into areas, each offering a different atmosphere. Palermo Soho and Palermo Hollywood speak for themselves. They are full of new eclectic restaurants, late night cocktail spots, and boutiques with very fashion-forward designs popular with those seeking to see and be seen! Parque Tres de Febrero has its rose garden and planetarium, and its rowing lakes attract picnickers and romantics of all ages. The fabulous MALBA Art Museum is in the midst of it all, with its collection showcasing 20th century and newer Latin American artwork, cultural events and films. And nearby is the Evita Museum which chronicles the life of Eva PerĂ³n.

Today it is so popular everywhere to use the exterior of old buildings in mostly residential neighborhoods to express the times and the idealism of the locals and Buenos Aires is no different. During this tour you will hear about the history of the Graffiti or 'Urban Art' in this city and learn about the people behind the art. Though there is street art everywhere, one area in particular exemplifies this theme of public expression and it is in Soho Palermo. As you walk through this neighborhood with your guide, your attention will be directed up to see those graphics as you pass. The artists have their own unique history that adds flavor to the experience. Watch the sidewalks, some of which have their own 'movement' over the years - don't trip while you take in the art and their messages, most of which reflect the trends of the upcoming generations.

While you walk and talk, you will also be sipping some of the best Malbec in Argentina. France is the place of origin of Malbec, but Argentina is now home to nearly 70% of the Malbec vineyards in the world. And the sommeliers you will meet along the way will help you identify the qualities of this Argentinian wonder.

When you complete this chronological and physical journey, you will understand the evolution of this artform as it moved from vandalism to an aesthetically pleasing method of messaging. It is full of feeling, devastation, hope, and belief. Luckily most of that work was completed in areas that have the trendiest spots in the city!
