What You Can Expect
Visit the Cathedral of La Plata, one of the largest churches in Argentina. Inspired by European cathedrals, the Cathedral of La Plata is located near the center of the city, making it one of the most prominent structures in the city. Continue exploring and make your way to the National University of La Plata, where you'll visit the Natural Science Museum. Home to over 2 million artifacts, your guide will show you around and teach you about some of the objects collected at the museum, including ancient dinosaur fossils from Patagonia.
Then, head to the astronomical observatory, where you’ll learn intriguing facts about the stars and galaxies. Next, visit the Teatro Argentino de La Plata, home to one of Argentina's leading opera houses. Tour the theater and take a behind-the-scenes look at where the performers prepare before going on stage. After a day of exploring, enjoy a relaxing drive back to your hotel in Buenos Aires.
This is a fast trip and, as indicated in the narrative, intended to introduce you to the city. For those of us who are on a tight schedule it does provide a taste of what is outside Buenos Aires. If you have the time I suggest a full day trip. Note the colorful houses that Viator shows on the trip page are NOT in La Plata, not a problem for use but disappointed one of the folks on the tour. You can see them on the Buenos Aires tour.
This was nice to get a look at life outside the city.
