This energetic port is the gateway to Argentina. Buenos Aires is often called the “Paris of South America” for its classic architecture and rich European heritage. The city has wide boulevards and cobblestone alleys, quaint cafés and markets. The city is a patchwork of neighborhoods that cover over 202 km2 and has a population of about three million. You can explore La Boca and San Telmo where the buildings are colourful and fun, or the wealthy districts such as La Recoleta (also the namesake of the famous cemetery where Eva Peron is buried) and trendy Palermo.
