To get a complete experience of Buenos Aires, we recommend spending eight days in and around the city. There are so many neighborhoods to explore, foods to try, museums to investigate and attractions to photograph. We spent a whole two weeks in the Argentinian capital and never had a dull moment.
Our eight day Buenos Aires itinerary is based on walking but we understand that Buenos Aires is a big city with a lot of history therefore we have added several alternative bus tours to the itinerary. We hope you enjoy your adventure!
