Buenos Aires, the capital of Argentina, is an important South American metropolis with a distinctive European feel. The city is filled with great food, music and dancing.
Visitors can experience the best of both worlds in Buenos Aires; the city is home to famous designer clothing boutiques, high end restaurants, and five star hotels as well as historical buildings, traditional markets and classic Buenos Aires corner shops.
Popular tourist destinations include the San Telmo Market, Teatro Colon, which is the most famous opera house in the city, and The Ideal.
National railways in Argentina are not consistent, so it is difficult to get to Buenos Aires by train. Contrastingly, bus services from Retiro bus station can take travellers nearly anywhere in the country. Many busses are multi level with seats that can fully recline and include meal services.
The major airport in Buenos Aires is Ministro Pistarini International Airport (airport code EZE). It is nearly 25 kilometres outside of the city but busses operate from the airport into the city to serve the almost 8 million travellers that move through Ministro Pistarini International Airport (more commonly known as Ezeiza International Airport) in 2009.
31 airlines fly into and out of Ezeiza International. In 2009 these 31 airlines flew over 93,300 flights.
