Walk along the city’s wide avenues – at their prettiest during spring, when the jacaranda flowers bloom – and fall under the spell of the Belle Epoque magnificence that dominated buildings in Buenos Aires in the early 1900s. Then, get to the heart of the modern day metropolis through the contemporary architecture and designs of burgeoning districts like the docks. For the ultimate guided tour of this eclectic city, all you need to do is look up.
