Pass the Casa Rosada, the seat of the Government, the white Cabildo, a historic place of administrative power and now transformed into a small museum of the history of the city, and finally the imposing cathedral.

Afternoon

Make your way to San Telmo, a neighborhood known for hosting the great families that founded the city and the cradle of the tango.

La Boca is a typical and colorful neighborhood, where the nostalgic image of the arrival of European emigrants, mainly Italian still lingers. La Boca has become very touristic.

Finish your visit with a stop at Puerto Madero, home of a pioneer project for the rehabilitation of the old docks of the city that was started in the 90s.
