    Puerto Madero

    74 reviews

    Puerto Madero is a thriving waterfront of restaurants, museums, and retail shops. It was once the old wharves for storing perishables that were being exported abroad. But Buenos Aires officials recently redeveloped the waterfront to make it more tourist friendly, and they succeeded beyond their wildest imaginations. The Italian restaurant Sottovoche makes great Italian food!

    Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes

    10 reviews

    This building was once Buenos Aires water-pumping station converted into a fantastic museum. There are over 12 thousand artistic works, but only 700 can be displayed at a time. Opened in 1932, this is one of the finest art museums in all of Latin America. I would strongly recommend that you pay them a visit while in Buenos Aires.

    Amazing street market. Tons to browse through and a great place to pick up more authentic souvenirs. Be on the look out for Tango dancers and mind your purses and pockets - it's very crowded and I've heard the pick-pockets are very good at their work.
