Palermo Tours

18 reviews
Buenos Aires’ largest barrio, the northeastern district of Palermo is one of the city’s most affluent and fashionable neighborhoods. Known for its beautiful parks, grand monuments, and art museums, Palermo is where porteños (locals) come to eat, shop, and party, with a buzzing nightlife and some of the city’s top restaurants, bars, and cafés.

The Basics
Most Buenos Aires city tours make a stop in Palermo, as well as neighborhoods such as La Boca, San Telmo, and Puerto Madero. Bike tours are a popular way to explore, and the most scenic route takes you through the Palermo Woods, passing the Botanical Gardens, the Japanese Garden, the planetarium, and the Floralis Genérica sculpture

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Many of the smaller shops in Palermo don’t open until 10am and are closed on Sundays.
  • Most of Palermo’s museums are closed on Tuesdays.
  • Palermo’s large size means walking isn’t always possible, but taxis are easy to find, especially around the main plazas.  

How to Get There
Located in the northeast of Buenos Aires, Palermo is well served by public transport. A number of buses run through the neighborhood, and the main metro (subte) stations are Palermo, Plaza Italia, and Scalabrini Ortiz. 

When to Get There
There’s something to do at all hours in Palermo. During the day, you can explore museums or browse the shops around Plaza Serrano; at night, head to Palermo Hollywood to party until the wee hours. Many shops and attractions are closed on Sundays, when locals pack a picnic and head to the parks instead.  

Subdistricts of Palermo
The vast barrio of Palermo is split into multiple subdistricts, each with its own unique character. In the east, Palermo Chico is the most exclusive quarter, lined with luxurious mansions and home to the MALBA (Museum of Latin American Art in Buenos Aires). Palermo Viejo is the historic center, which includes Palermo Soho, a lively shopping and dining area centered on Plaza Serrano, and Palermo Hollywood, known for its bars and nightclubs. Las Cañitas lies on the border of Belgrano and has some of the city’s best restaurants and parrillas (steakhouses).
