Itinerary

Day 1

Buenos Aires

Arrival, reception and transfer.

After the check in, we begin to introduce ourselves to the world of tango. While touring the neighbourhoods that gave rise to the tango, we go into detail about some aspects that help us  understand why tango was declared an Intangible Cultural Heritage by UNESCO.

We start in La Boca, the port of the city where the immigrants came to the city, to know the history of the conventillos, piringundines (meeting places) and the lunfardo (slang associated to  tango). We continue through San Telmo to see the corner of El Viejo Almacén, considered the temple of the tango and finish in El Federal, remarkable bar where we have a light lunch.

In the evening, we attend a dinner show at El Querandí.

Meals: Lunch, Dinner

Day 2

Buenos Aires

Although the origins of tango began in the middle of the nineteenth century, it wasn’t until the  following stage that tango adopted its name, its original music and creative choreography. In that  period, it begins to take part in the life of the aristocracy, so we drive to Recoleta, neighbourhood  where we find the Palais de Glace, that used to be a dance floor.

Later, we visit two sites that, although nowadays they do not exist, were of great importance for the tango. First we approach the place where the Armenonville was, one of the most luxurious  cabarets in Buenos Aires. Moreover, we drive to Lo de Hansen, in Palermo, said to be one of the  cradles of tango. We end up taking a snack in Esquina Aníbal Troilo, remarkable coffee (“bar notable”).

In the evening, we enjoy a dinner and a sensual tango show at Rojo Tango.

Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

Day 3

Buenos Aires

If we talk about Tango, we had better know about the history of Carlos Gardel, the greatest tango singer of all time. The tour covers two important neighborhoods: San Nicolas, passing by some places where he was raised, Café Tortoni and Café los Angelitos, both notable bars that he frequented. Moreover, we visit Abasto, area that gave him the nickname of “Morocho del Abasto” (Brunette from Abasto). Through a walking tour, we visit the house where he lived, today turned into a museum, Zelaya Passage with murals dedicated to the singer, Paseo Gardel with his monument and the corner “Chanta Cuatro” where nowadays we find a “tanguería” (where tango shows take  place).

On the way back, we have lunch at a traditional restaurant related to the history of Gardel.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch
