You visit BA ? This is a must. It is considered to be one of the top 3 in the world, if not the best, not by the general audience but for opera singers as well.

It is one ot the most important theaters of the world. Its accoustics are among the top three. It is an expression of what was Argentina In 1920.

We opted to buy a cheap ticket (roughly 8$ per person) for a ballet on evening instead of visiting the theatre through the guided tours during the day. They passed on “la sylphide”. It’s been a while I didn’t see a classical piece and this...More

Regrettably, we were not able to attend a performance at Teatro Colon, but the guided tour was a good option. Spectacular building, which has undergone an extensive renovation. Very reminiscent of other wonderful opera houses, including that in Vienna..

San Nicolas
Immersed in the sound of honking horns and the
footsteps of busy office workers, the Microcentro area
of San Nicolás is where visitors will encounter the
true hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires, walking down
streets lined with office buildings and banks. The
financial district is well-known for its vibrant
atmosphere and unstoppable rhythm during office hours.
After dark, the hubbub and migrates to Corrientes
