“The oldest part of Buenos Aires”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2012

Very interesting in terms of having a sense of the foundation of Buenos Aires. It is the oldest part of the city. It´s worth the visit to see people dancing tango in the streets, old buildings, anticuaries (real stuff).

“Historic little spot with a great little restaurant "Veladas Virreinales"”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2012

Stumbled upon this spot in the rain while wandering around the Plz. de Mayo. There are a few shops inside a beautiful old building, a courtyard that was blasting classical music, a violin maker and then a great little restaurant called Veladad Virreinales. The restaurant had surprisingly delicious fresh ravioli, delicious coffee and a wonderful vibe... it may have helped that we were the only ones in there but our server was very nice, we even ended up sharing tongue twisters in our various languages (English, Spanish and Korean) Definitely worth popping your head in for a bit of history!

“No, we didn't cross the city in the underground tunnels”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2012

It's nice to learn about the history but we didn't even walk any part of the "tunnel" because they're only renovated to be shown and for stories to be told, so don't have high hopes! The cafe would be a nice place to lose yourself in the hustle of the day.

“Where's the rest?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2012

Is this all it rests from old Buenos Aires? Being just half a city block it could be easily kept in a better way.
