Day 3 - Buenos Aires
On your bike!
An alternative way to see Buenos Aires is on a pushbike! There are two tours to choose from, visiting different areas and attractions around the city. The first tour is the classical tour which goes to many of the city’s main historical attractions along with some of the neighbourhoods. The new tour, on the other hand, visits the city zoo and botanical gardens, Plaza Italia and more. You just need to decide which one interests you more!
As the city bike tours depart at either 9.30am or 2.30pm and take approximately four hours to complete, whether you decide to go either in the morning or the afternoon you should have a few hours to spare at some stage during the day. There are various ways in which to kill these hours, although one of the more enjoyable is a visit to Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, which is the museum of fine arts. Situated on Avenue del Libertador which is at the top of Avenue 9 de Julio, there are both permanent and temporary exhibitions on display, showcasing collections from different Argentinean artists.
And if art isn’t your thing, close to the city centre is an area known as San Telmo. As this is Buenos Aires’ artists quarter, everywhere you look you can see antique shops and every Sunday there is an artists fair here at Plaza Dorrego. Many of the city’s tango bars are in San Telmo also.
