Buenos Aires

Elegant but always bustling, Buenos Aires embodies the very essence of Argentina: in every quarter of the city someone is either dancing, singing or painting. Its compact green center, where neat high-rise buildings alternate with 19th-century buildings, is reminiscent of secluded corners of Paris, and each quarter has its own character and charm.
