The Teatro Colon has an incredible history which was shared by the English speaking tour guide in a passionate, humorous way. The building has been livingly restored and the 50 minute guided tour well worth the $20 USD cost

An elegant, beautifully maintained, premiere theater! Somehow tickets were impossible to obtain online...so I headed straight to the theater upon arriving in Buenos Aires. English speaking ticket sellers were helpful, and the performance of ballet and orchestra was breathtaking, even from the third balcony!! A...More

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.,
