What draws so many people to the capital of Argentina? The city's charisma, of course! The European personality of the city with its wide roads, sidewalk cafes and enchanting architecture add to its charm making it a lovely place to visit.
The city enjoys lovely sunshine when countries in the Northern hemisphere groan under a blanket of snow.
So its summer months of December to February are peak tourist season here; but if you wish to avoid the crowds, visit during October or November when its spring and the jacaranda blooms decorate the city.
Lively though it is, one of the top attractions in here is a cemetery.
La Recoleta Cemetery is not just the second largest in the world; it is also the final resting place of the most notorious and reputed figures of Argentina.
Many people flock to the vault of Evita; still others spend hours admiring the creative tombs and grand mausoleums.
Other important sights here include the MALBA, Floralis Generica, Cabildo, Cathedral Metropolitana and Nueve De Julio Avenue.
This city is more about experiencing than seeing.
Your best tourist experience could be just a stroll across Puerto Madero or sidewalks of Palermo.
Palermo's delightful parks, Avenida de Mayo's architectural wonders, the designer shops of Avenida Alvear and watching Portenos at Calle Florida are just a few instances of enjoyable tourist experiences here.
For children, the Buenos Aires Botanical Gardens and Buenos Aires Zoo offer different aspects of nature and plenty of open space, while the Galileo Galilei Planetarium in the Bosques de Palermo offers space of another kind, one that will magnetize children.
This city wouldn't be complete without its football and tango.
Make sure you attend at least one match where you can opt to watch the frenzied fans crying themselves hoarse or celebrated teams clash to succeed.
Tango is another beautiful experience; even if you are not a dance lover, you will be moved by the beauty and melancholy of tango.
Get your best Tango experiences in a Milonga where you can even get someone to teach you to tango.
The Tango festival which takes place in August is a fantastic celebration of this fine dance form.
Another pride of this place is it's "Never say Good Night" nightlife.
With plenty of cheerful music bars, romantic tango bars, clubs and chic restaurants that are open till midnight, nights here are often brighter than day.
Recoleta, Palermo and Costanera are the happening neighborhoods for superb nightlife.
Shopping is yet another attraction.
If you're looking for high quality leather products, exquisite designer wear, football souvenirs or gaucho items, this is the right place to buy.
Lavelle Street, Florida Street and Palermo Viejo are few reputed shopping haunts.
