Independently of one of the best acoustics in the world theaters, the refined beauty of Argentina's golden age has been recycled to show all its splendor. Be it opera, ballet or concerts of classical music or icluso of good popular music, it will always be...More

One of the truly great theatres in the world. Seeing -and hearing!- is believing. The guids are as knowledgeable as they are friendly. A must if you are in Buenos Aires, even if you are not an opera fan (beware: you might come out one!)

Nicely decorated and beautiful theater. Joined a group tour in order to visit and see inside. If you can, book it in advance online as it's a popular spot. Budget 90 minutes.

If you love opera and architecture this is must-visit place when you in Buenos Aires. Teatro Colon was originally due to be opened in 1892, but a series of tragedies complicated and delayed the process. It finally opened in 1908 with a performance of Verdi’s...More

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.
