    Best Time to Visit

    Spring comes in October and Buenos Aires blooms in purple thanks to the jacaranda trees (the Rose Garden Walk is a must). Major events like the Grand Prix follow in November, just before the foreign crowds reach the city starting December.

    What to Pack

    A Spanish-language handbook to engage with locals is essential. For dining out, be ready to dress to the nines, or be turned away, but in the daytime you’ll want something comfy for exploring – a walking tour is recommended.

    General Tips

    The Argentinian capital boasts the liveliest theater scene in the world, with more production than any other – some 300 theaters operate in the city. Buenos Aires is also home to the outstanding Teatro Colon for opera (home to Buenos Aires Philharmonic), and of course Tango, one of the most respected, elegant (and quite difficult) dance forms in the world.

    When it comes to art, there art two unmissables in the city, The Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes is divided into a ground floor of international works from the 15th Century onwards, and a first floor of 20th Century Argentinian painters.

    Over at MALBA (The Latin American Art Museum of Buenos Aires), Latin American art from the 1900s until the present day are on show.

    ArteBA, the annual contemporary art fair is the largest in South America and runs each June. The well-established Buenos Aires Fashion Week takes place in August and February.
