Bustling and dynamic, melancholic and passionate – Buenos Aires reflects the many contrasts and the variety that defines Argentina. South America’s multicultural city that “never sleeps” offers possibilities for everyone: for those who love the nightlife it has shows and events almost at every hour, and for those who prefer a calmer rhythm it has corners that invite to walk through the world of Borges or a scenery recreated by a Tango song.
Buenos Aires has that sort of appealing that invites to go for encounters, either with their people, or with its history at the legendary corners of the town. The different architecture styles coexisting altogether, reveals the influence that migration has had during the last century. Culturally, the footprint of the mixture between Gauchos and Spaniards/Italians can be seen in the daily life.
