    What to Expect
    Explore the city of La Plata, the capital of the province of Buenos Aires, on this day trip from Buenos Aires. After pickup from your hotel, set out on the 35-mile (57-km) trip to La Plata via coach and learn about the culture, religion and architecture of the colonial city through commentary from your guide.

    Stop at the Cathedral of La Plata, one of Argentina's largest churches. Located near the city center, this imposing building is inspired by the architecture of European churches and is one of the city's most important landmarks. Visit the campus of the University of La Plata, home to the Natural Science Museum. Host to over 2 million artifacts, including dinosaur bones and fossils from Patagonia, this museum is a national treasure.

    Follow your guide to the astronomical observatory and learn about the particular views of the stars and galaxies that can be seen from the Southern hemisphere. Visit the Teatro Argentina de La Plata, and enjoy a behind-the-scenes tour of one of Argentina's leading opera houses. After your adventure in La Plata is over, relax in your comfortable coach for the ride back to your Buenos Aires hotel.
