Book a tour. It lasts only 45 min and English tours were limited. The theater itself was fabulous. Would have liked to see more of the extensive support areas of the theater such as costumer, cobblers, set design etc.

Teatro colon, like many aspects of Buenos Aires, has its own charm. If you go in the day time you will notice its grandeur look and in the night time (from the outside), it is light-up! Inside is another wow factor that you will appreciate...More

Went to see the filarmonica orquestra and it was amazing. The music, the theater, everything. I recommend getting tickets to see a performance, because that way you get to see the inside of the theater and enjoy high quality entertainment.

One of the most striking buildings in Buenos Aires. You have to take a tour and if at all possible hear a symphony or opera. Very well kept and by far worth the price of admission. Had the chance to hear the Buenos Aires symphony...More

The national opera house of Argentina was meant to impress and indeed it is awesome! We booked a guided tour in Spanish (English also available) and found it really informative and interesting. Much worth both time and money, the guide was very knowledgeable.

San Nicolas
Immersed in the sound of honking horns and the
footsteps of busy office workers, the Microcentro area
of San Nicolás is where visitors will encounter the
true hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires, walking down
streets lined with office buildings and banks. The
financial district is well-known for its vibrant
atmosphere and unstoppable rhythm during office hours.
After dark, the hubbub and migrates to Corrientes
