The streets of Argentina's thriving capital are alive with passion, and offer no end of thrilling attractions and opportunities. Begin your trip in this sophisticated destination by exploring the antiques and hidden treasures of the Feria de San Telmo street fair, a colourful market that draws in thousands of visitors each week. Later, head to soak up the sights at the Casa Rosada, a historically and politically cruicial spot in the city, and the workplace of the country's very own President. As your afternoon continues, stop by MALBA, one of the city's most beloved art museums, before heading to one of the city's greatest steak establishments for a taste of Argentine culture and a sample of the country's incredible beef. Finally, no trip to this capital is complete without trying your hand at a tango - this city is the dance's birthplace and we highly recommend heading to an authentic 'milonga' to make the most of your stay!
