Exploring Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires is a sprawling metropolis so it is worth giving some thought to how you intend to travel around before you arrive. There is a subway service or you can use taxis. Car hire is another option that would also enable you to travel outside the city. If you do decide to hire a car then check the insurance coverage and consider taking out a specific car hire excess insurance policy as this will ensure that you are fully covered against any damage to the hire car.

Sites that you should definitely fit into your itinerary include Plaza de Mayo and the famous Casa Rosada, the Cathedral, San Telmo which is the oldest part of Buenos Aires and the Recoleta Cemetery where you can learn about probably the most famous Argentinean Eva Peron. There are also walking tours available which cover all of the main sites of interest.(Image by Francisco Aragão)
