Markets of Buenos Aires
Starting from $99 USD / Adult
Enjoy a taste of local life as you delve into the market culture of Buenos Aires. Follow a local guide through the streets that define the local shopping scene, beginning along the Caminito , that inspired the music for the famous tango song. This hodgepodge of bright facades and corrugated aluminum roofs is a popular pedestrian walk, where local painters show off their works and a lively handicraft market begs exploration. From here, head to San Telmo, the city's oldest district and home to eclectic antique merchants where you're sure to find a rare keepsake or two. Your last stop is the fashionable area of Recoleta, where local boutiques and shops vie for attention. Make a special visit to El Ateneo. Once an ornate theater, this bookstore still boasts the wild frescoes, plush stage curtains and theater boxes of its show-stopping era. In fact, The Guardian named it the second-most beautiful bookshop in the world. Take some time to explore the bookshop while enjoying a coffee and pastry.
