On the west coast of Argentina is Buenos Aires, the country’s capital which overlooks the Rio de la Plata estuary. It’s home to two of South America's most renowned football teams, Boca Junior and River Plate, between whom there is a long-standing rivalry. Visit their respective stadia and museums to understand the passion and history of these South American titans. An arena of a different stripe sits between these two sporting icons: the Teatro Colón, one of the greatest opera houses in the world. Join us here and you’ll see parts other visitors do not, including the workshops that produce the fabulous costumes and the backstage area. A short walk north will take you to the affluent Recoleta neighbourhood – where you’ll get to stop at the impressive Recoleta Cemetery, last resting place of Eva Peron. In chic, upmarket Palermo Viejo you'll be welcomed into the home of a family who will show you how country bread is made.
