The Teatro Colon, in the City of Buenos Aires, is considered one of the best theaters in the world. Acknowledged for its acoustics and the artistic value of its construction, it turned 100 years in 2008.
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.
I thought that after seeing on the website that there were tours every 15 minutes that we could just show up and get in. Wrong. We showed up and there we no English tours for rest of day, a Spanish tour in two hours, and...More
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.
Great tour. Very informative. Not too long. We were super lucky to go on a Sunday when they put on free performances for the public so we not only saw the wonderful concert hall but got to hear and appreciate the world famous acoustics of...More

The size, the perfect acoustics and the elegance makes it one of the best...More
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.
Definitely worth seeing. This Opera House was designed bt 3 architects working together.
There are many wats to see it. Each day there is a ‘free’ guide outside the theater. Purchase tickets directly at the box office for English tours that lasts about 50 min.-...More
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.
