The mood for your first full day in Buenos Aires is decidedly set as you enjoy breakfast at the hotel. As you dine on local flavors in this scenic setting, prepare to discover the heart and soul of the city during the morning’s tour of Buenos Aires’ southern neighborhoods. During this half-day tour, you’ll explore iconic neighborhoods including the European-flavored La Boca, the waterfront-filled Puerto Madero, and historic San Telmo.
Of course, there’s no better way to get to know the local culture than to eat as the locals do. Our Argentina wine tours include lunch at a traditional bodegón: La Popular de San Telmo. Enjoy homemade Argentinian dishes under festive décor and ceiling paintings of soccer fans, an homage to the country’s love affair with the sport.
After returning to the Four Seasons Buenos Aires, take some time to relax and recharge before the evening’s food and wine festivities. One surefire way to relax is at the spa, where the Porteno Tango Massage combines relaxation with culture as your body is massaged to the beats of Argentinian tango music. Arts and culture aficionados can take a short walk to El Ateneo Grand Splendid, considered one of the most beautiful bookstores in the world, or immerse themselves in Argentinian art at Museo Nacional de Bella Artes.
Save some excitement for dinnertime, as tonight’s meal promises to make an impression. After all, you’ll be dining at one of Buenos Aires’ top restaurants: Pura Tierra. Here, Chef Martin Moltini takes your taste buds on a tour of Argentina’s most local and authentic flavors. Sample freshly sourced produce from the country’s best markets, try exotic meats like rabbit and wild boar, and discover the true secret to Argentinian cuisine: the clay oven. You’ll find plenty of reasons to raise a glass as several Argentinian wines are served with each course.
