Buenos Aires is a huge, sprawling city, but most areas of interest are in the compact and foot-friendly downtown. The locals call themselves porteños, celebrating the fact that Buenos Aires is a port city, born on the banks of the Rio de la Plata. Elegant and stylish, with a good-sized dollop of European ambiance, you can feel the passion in this busy city where the culture, nightlife, food and drink come with an eminently affordable price tag.

Day 1: B.A. from A to B

Greet the day in El Microcentro, the 19th century city center, where proud porteños parade along Avenida Florida. Follow your nose to the neoclassical Metropolitan Cathedral, or join a walking tour for a central B.A. overview. See what opera or ballet is showing at the elaborately gilded Teatro Colon theater, pay your respects to Eva Peron at the Recoleta Cemetery, and see what’s shaking in the gelati-hued enclave of La Boca.

Day 2: Perfect Parrillas

The cowboys and steers of the Pampas have given Argentina a reputation for superior grilled meat, so unless you’re a vegetarian don’t leave the city without sampling the steak for yourself. The steakhouses are known as parrillas, and you can expect a good-sized serving of friendly atmosphere with your plate-sized portion of beef. Check out Cabana Las Lilas for a truly meaty celebration, La Estancia for traditional decor or El Desnivel for home-spun hospitality. And if you are a vegetarian, head to Cafe Tortoni for coffee and cake in the sophisticated ambiance of BA’s most famous traditional cafe.

Day 3: B.A. Day Trips

For a quick getaway on the city’s edge, jump aboard the Tren de la Costa train to Tigre for a spot of boating on the Parana River delta. It’s easy to stay put and while away the day in Tigre, a lovely port town with retro architecture, a crafts market, naval museum and plenty of antique shops and restaurants. If you fancy heading across the border to Uruguay, the cute colonial town of Colonia del Sacramento is only a 3.5-hour boat ride away from Tigre.
