We begin to discover the city of Buenos Aires. 9 de Julio Avenue is one of the widest avenues in the world at 125 meters. In the Plaza de la República you will find the symbol of Buenos Aires, an obelisk 67 meters high built in 1936 to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the city.

You will discover Plaza de Mayo, the soul of Buenos Aires since 1580, a symbolic place of many historical events.

It is around this square that you will find the seat of the Government of Argentina, the Cabildo building (old city hall), the Casa Rosada (presidential palace) and the Metropolitan Cathedral.

Avenida de Mayo, the main street of the old colonial city, where the municipality of Buenos Aires is located. The Plaza del Congreso, kilometer zero of all routes in Argentina and its monument of the two congresses in front of the National Congress building, seat of the Senate and the Chamber of Deputies.

The commercial area and the City with the pedestrian Florida Street, the most transited in Buenos Aires. We continue with the visit to San Telmo, one of the oldest neighborhoods of the city, with a great number of constructions of the 19th century, which houses many art galleries and antique stores.

Next, we visit the famous La Boca neighborhood, with its picturesque "conventillos", typical houses painted in all colors, to give life to this port neighborhood, marked by a lively past.

Later we visit the contrast of the most modern neighborhood of the city: Puerto Madero, where the glazed buildings rise like a curtain, in the middle of dikes with brick architecture, transformed into restaurants.

Then, we go to Palermo and its magnificent gardens and residences. The large park, the main lung of the city, is a pleasant place to walk with its Japanese Garden.

Recoleta neighborhood, an aristocratic neighborhood with its European architecture, its stores and luxury restaurants. Discover the famous cemetery whose construction, from 1822, houses many impressive mausoleums declared historical monuments. Near the main entrance is the church of Nuestra Señora del Pilar, a jewel of South American baroque art. The area is also known for its cafes, restaurants and tea rooms, as well as its handicraft market every weekend.

Return and overnight at the selected hotel.

 

DAY 2: BUENOS AIRES – LUJÁN

 

Breakfast at the hotel.

In the morning half day “Pope Francis” circuit.

On December 17, 1936, Jorge Mario Bergoglio, today His Holiness Francisco, was born in the Buenos Aires neighborhood of Flores.

Those of us who live in Buenos Aires are proud to know that it was in this city that he grew up, made friends, was educated and found his vocation. Here he always worked with humility and commitment for those who needed it most, and with his example he inspired us and showed us that together we can create a future in which we are happier.

Through the "Papal Circuit", we want to give neighbors and tourists the opportunity to learn more about the life of the Supreme Pontiff of the Roman Catholic Church.

We are convinced that those who take this tour will find not only a life story, but also teachings and values that are the impetus to continue building a better society together.
