Argentina’s vast metropolis is a melting pot of cultures and colors, of food and football, history and, above all, tango. Pulsing with life as only the truly great cities can, it swings to its own beat 24 hours a day and never seems to sleep. A city of neighborhoods – each with a distinct blend of local and national cultures, almost all worth visiting – it can be tricky to feel like you’ve really experienced Buenos Aires. Which is why we’ve danced on the streets, gorged on the meats at the city's best restaurants, and explored local markets, attractions, shops and hotels to uncover what really makes it magic. Don’t forget your dancing shoes.
