We booked ahead for a tour in English. It would have been a waste of time otherwise. We were lucky to make the tour on time because of the long live of people - even having booked online first.

A friend recommended to do the tour and I am so glad I did. The story behind this impressive building is amazing. Tours are every 15 minutes and you can enjoy a nice coffee in the cafeteria right across the entrance. A must if you visit Buenos Aires.

The tour of the Teatro Colon was included with our 3 day package. I was not thrilled about it but thought it could be interesting. Well, it was stunning. Our volunteer tour guide was one of the architects that worked on the renovation. The theatre has been beautifully renovated and it shows wonderfully. The sound in the theatre is second... More

there are visits organized for reduced groups, that last 2 hours more or less, guided by young people with lot of kowledge about the building, the date, the decorations meanings, the plays, operas, authors, it´s very enriching experience, also they share episodes or things that happened that defines the atmosphere and the mysticism that flows inside the theatre.

Neighborhood Profile
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 migrates to Corrientes Ave., where theater lovers might start their evening at a play and end it in one of the many traditional pizzerias nearby. During the day, Corrientes is known for its many bookshops and classic cafés, which are located just minutes away from some famous landmarks, like the Obelisco, Avenida 9 de Julio, and the Teatro Colon.
