Teatro Colón

Teatro Colón

One of BA’s most eye-catching landmarks, theTeatro Colónis our sumptuous home for the performing arts
A world-class forum for opera, ballet and classical music, the Colón has a history as rich as its repertoire, and some superb acoustics


Even if you don’t have time to watch a concert, we recommend the hour-long backstage tours which run every day in Spanish, English and Portuguese


Gardel, Piazzolla and all things Tango 

Whether it’s a tango masterclass you’re after, a visit to a milonga, a street-show or a glitzy dinner + show combo, a trip to Buenos Aires just isn’t complete without a taste of tango
With its roots in the city’s working-class port neighbourhoods, the music and dance immortalized by the likes of Astor Piazzolla and Carlos Gardel can be best experienced in the San Telmo, Abasto and La Boca neighbourhoods. And if you’re around in August, the International World Tango Festival & World Cup is an absolute must-see


The asado experience


The asado is much more than a meal, it’s a gastronomic marathon wholly ingrained in Argentine culture and always enjoyed with a bottle or two of Malbec wine. Visit a ‘parrilla’ (steak house) on an empty stomach and be prepared to sample a full range of meat cuts, from the achuras: morcillas (blood sausage) riñones (kidneys), mollejas (sweetbread) and chinchulines (intestines), to the mains: entraña (skirt steak), bife de chorizo (sirloin strips), costillas (ribs), lomo (tenderloin), and much much more


Recoleta Cemetery

Lose yourself for hours in this labyrinthine city for the dead. Statues, sarcophagi, coffins and crypts commemorate some of Argentina’s most celebrated sons and daughters, not least Eva Peron


Free tours in English are available at 11am on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Don’t forget to pick up a map at the entrance!


Boca Jrs vs River Plate

Possibly the most passionate, hotly-contested soccer derby in the world, the atmosphere at the ‘superclásico’ is never less than electric, especially at the Bombonera stadium, home to Boca Jrs

With more football stadia than any other city in the world and two football seasons a year, it’s easy to catch another football game if you miss the superclásico


San Telmo Market

Hangover or no, Sundays should be reserved for the San Telmo Market, a sprawling antique and flea market which meanders from the Plaza Dorrego through the rough-and-tumble bohemian San Telmo neighbourhood

As well as trinkets, vintage clothing and souvenirs, the market boasts street performers and all sorts of eateries
