Recoleta

Adorned with park side restaurants, cafes, and art galleries, Recoleta is one of the most fashionable and popular neighborhoods in Buenos Aires. Tourists and locals alike are drawn in by the European-style architecture, outdoor street fairs on the weekends, and multitude of upscale boutiques and bars. Make sure to check out the beautiful and lavish Cementerio de la Recoleta, as well as the enormous Plaza Francia.

Teatro Colón

The magnificence of the Teatro Colon is well known to the music-loving world. Touted to be one of the best opera houses in the world, it is the epitome of architectural opulence combined with technical excellence. Inaugurated on May 25, 1908, with the opera Aida by Giuseppe Verdi, the theater's impeccable architecture reflects the sheer beauty of the Italian Renaissance. The early construction of the theater was finished in 1908 under the mastery of Charles Pellegrini. For 30 years, it took the western classical music world by storm with its perfect acoustics. Once the theater started declining, massive efforts were undertaken to restore the glory of this marvel. Today, the elaborate plaster moldings, the gargantuan chandelier amidst the colorful frescoes and the sweeping staircases of the intricately carved foyer manage to capture the hearts of art and music lovers. The world's finest ballets and operas including those of Tchaikovsky, Verdi and Puccini have been performed here at numerous galas. Ranked among the top five performance venues in the world in terms of acoustic excellence, Teatro Colón defines unparalleled opulence.

Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes

Opened in 1896, the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes has 32 exhibit halls with state of the art technology for both traditional and multimedia shows. Its permanent collection—the oldest piece dating from the 12th Century—includes European masters such as Goya, Renoir, Van Gogh, Rodin and Bourdelle. Works by Argentine masters from the 19th and 20th Centuries, including Juan Carlos Castagnino and Benito Quinquela Martín are also featured. There is a library open to the public and workshops for art restoration and editing of audio-visuals.

El Ateneo Grand Splendid

After an exhaustive and careful restoration of this beautiful 1919 theater, the biggest bookstore in Latin America opened in what used to be the old Grand Splendid cinema. Without altering the old structure—twinned with the Opera de Paris theatre—it still has its original features and magnificent friezes, like the one on the spectacular dome. There is now a cafeteria in place of the stage, where you can read books taken from the bookshelves. There are also reading places on the corners of the main floor and in the old balconies on the first floor, furnished with tables and comfortable armchairs, computers for searching or online purchasing and an area dedicated to children, 'El Ateneo Junior', with interactive games and storytelling. There is also a small music stage, CDs and DVDs for sale, art exhibitions on the third floor and facilities for watching DVDs.

Estadio Alberto J. Armando

Home to one of the top Argentine football clubs and one of the most emblematic stadiums in the world, Estadio Alberto J. Armando is the modern icon of the sportsman spirit. Dating back to the year 1940, the stadium is often lovingly called La Bombonera or The Chocolate Box because of its unique shape. A flat, towering stand that distinguishes itself from the three grandstands has earned the stadium the moniker of a chocolate box. Boca Juniors, a premier Argentina soccer club, found its home in the new stadium after the old one was demolished. Football enthusiasts have admired the venue for its exquisite shape and impeccable acoustics. The stadium has witnessed some of the biggest international artists like Backstreet Boys and Elton John take the audience by storm with their performances. A museum with soccer exhibits is housed inside the stadium.

National Museum of Decorative Arts

Founded in 1937, the National Museum for Decorative Art is the former palatial mansion of the wealthy Argentine Errázuriz Alvear family. The interiors of this lavish building retain the French-inspired architectural floor plan and embellishments. The expansive underground coach house and storage area, antechambers, bedrooms and servant's quarters comprise the exhibit spaces for over 4000 pieces of European and Oriental objects of art. The reception and main halls on the ground floor are adorned with renaissance-style windowpanes, sculpted corbels and a fireplace which dominates the space for its sheer size. The decorative objects on exhibit include exquisite furnishings, tapestries, silverware, porcelain, ivory, paintings, sculptures and European miniatures from the XVI to XX centuries. There is a gift boutique and the elegant Croque Madame restaurant/bar is an ideal way to enjoy a drink, snack or high tea.
