I’m happy and sad about this article because it’ll be the last about my amazing trip to Argentina. If you haven’t read it, I suggest you to take a look at the part 1 of this article because it will help you to have a wider view of Buenos Aires.

Without being more, here are the things I did in this beautiful city when I came back.

Monumental Stadium

In the first article I told you about La Bombonera, now it’s the turn of the Antonio Vespucio Liberti Stadium, better known as Monumental. It’s the house of Club Atlético River Plate and the Argentina Team. I have to say that Monumental is more beautiful BUT La Bombonera has more soul.

You can take a tour that will guide you through the stadium, his history and the history of the club.

Ateneo Grand Splendid

If you like books, this is definitely a must do! This bookshop is the most beautiful I’ve ever met. Originally, it was a theatre, The Grand Splendid. It kept the architecture but was readapted to function as a bookshop. There, you will find books of all kinds, you can also know about its history and see photos, and drink a delicious coffee where the stage used to be.

Just the view of the place when you enter is absolutely astonishing. You will fall in love with the thought of read.

Florida Street

It’s a very popular pedestrian and shopping street located in downtown. It runs for approximately one kilometer. There, you will find restaurants, souvenirs and retails stores and shopping malls. Also you will see street performers such as singers, tango dancers and living statues.

The architecture in the buildings is very antique and beautiful. In Florida Street I bought a lot of gifts for my friends, including alfajores from Havana, very delicious!

Things I didn’t do but you should

Visit Cementerio de la Chacarita, Malba (Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires), La Biela and the Botanical Garden.

That’s all! I really hope that you enjoyed this series of articles because I enjoyed writing them. I don’t think it will be soon (unfortunately) but when I travel again I will tell you everything I do, hoping that someday you can do the same or, if you already did it, it will bring you beautiful memories.

Vanessa.
