“La Boca”

On a private guided tour of the sophisticated city of Buenos Aires, we shall visit the Main Square, Plaza de Mayo, with its outstanding buildings; Avenida de Mayo with its Art-Nouveau and Deco architecture, typical cafés, the Congress Building and the Colón Opera House. We will take a vintage subway for a short stretch to experience the city life and arrive at the famed Café Tortoni, an Art Nouveau landmark of Buenos Aires to sip a cup of coffee with croissants. We can organize an optional tango lesson here.

Then we will continue southbound towards La Boca, with its picturesque multicolour tin houses and lively atmosphere where we will stop at La Barrica for a glass of champagne and a street Tango demonstration. We will also pay a short visit to the world famous La Boca Stadium. After that, visit to LA BOCA NEIGHBOURHOOD overlooking the river, La Boca (“the mouth”) is a neighbourhood that feels miles away from central Buenos Aires. This area of multi-coloured, corrugated shacks and street stalls is where Italian immigrants first settled in the late 19th century. La Boca is the oldest, most colorful, and most authentic neighborhood in Buenos Aires. La Boca is partly an artist colony, and mostly a workingclass neighborhood. La Boca is a popular destination for tourists visiting Argentina, with its colourful houses and main street, the Caminito. The Genoese proudly brought their unique identity to La Boca, and one of their old traditions was to paint the outside of their homes with the leftover paint from the shipyard - as nothing else was available or could be afforded.
