Buenos Aires is one of the largest cities in the
world, counting a total of eleven million inhabitants in both the city and its
surroundings. It is a modern and dynamic city that still keeps some of its
old traditions. It is known as the most elegant city in South America; its
architecture represents the heterogeneity of its people, the so called "portenos"
(inhabitants of the port). Located by the Rio
de la Plata, the widest estuary in the world, Buenos Aires is the capital of the
tango and the football, of the gaucho and the "asado". It offers its
visitors numerous alternatives to spend nice and happy moments. In the city that
never sleeps, there is time and space for everyone. The aspect of the city is
very diverse, easily changing from the narrow streets to the widest avenues. To
catch its spirit it is necessary to walk along the streets in the downtown, to
see its elegant shop widows, to take a coffee in a sidewalk cafe or to visit the
residential neighborhoods, where the old buildings alternate with the most
modern constructions. This is a city with plenty typical restaurants of all
the regions of the country as well as with excellent international cuisine.
