When in Buenos Aires a tour of Teatro Colon is definitely worth doing. Architecturally, this is a very interesting theatre and it also has a rich history. It’s features and stories were very well explained in the hour long tour.

Truly beautiful architecture. Passionate guide. Great attraction to visit. Didn’t need to book ahead for tour. Turned up and joined about 20 others with English speaking guide. If we had more time, would’ve loved to go to a concert.

Went to visit Teatro Colon today and was unable to see the auditorium because they were rehearsing for a show. As this was the main reason for visiting it was very disappointing. Price was very inflated for what you were able to see.

I recommend taking the tour. The place has so much history and charm. It is a great place to spend the afternoon.

This Opera Theather without doubt is the best in the world. We went with my wife to rejoice to the Opera Rusiska from a great Check compositor, Dvorak ( he died aprox 110 years ago in 1904). Great music!!. The Orchesta did a magnifecent job.

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.,
