Overview

Make the most of your time with The Rough Guide to Buenos Aires. Flick through the introduction for an overview on where to go and what to see, from cosmopolitan architecture and stunning mansions to long coffee klatches, where you can soak up this energetic city whilst enjoying the finest coffee. Move on to read lively accounts of every attraction from walking along the Avenida de Mayo to enjoying dinner in a typical "parrillada." The guide provides detailed coverage of the outlying suburbs of San Isidro, Olivos and the Paraná Delta as well as destinations further afield – San Antonio de Areco and estancias in the Pampas, and Colonia del Sacramento in Uruguay. With colour sections on tango and football, the guide explores the city’s rich history and intense culture; includes detailed information on where to shop to where to see the best tango shows; gives practical information on accommodation and transportation; and, of course, reviews all the best places to eat and drink. With the clearest maps of any guide, be sure your trip to “the Pearl” of South America is one not to forget with this ultimate guide.
