Argentines are fanatics and passionate, especially for music and soccer. Our tour helps us understand this cultural phenomenon that surprises the whole world.
Let´s start with tango, musical genre that was born in Buenos Aires and conquered everyone in the beginning of 1900. The city is full of tango corners, each with its own history; and this tour invites us to visit them! The same happens with traditional bars that have survived over the years, and still retain the malevolent spirit of tango. This takes us to see neighborhoods like Abasto (where the Museo Carlos Gardel is located, but entrance ticket is not included), and the downtown.
Then, we go on with La Boca, surely the most tango neighborhood of all. There you can find the famous Caminito, where we stop to appreciate its colorful tenements and couples improvising tango steps.
But not all is tango, the neighborhood of La Boca is an emblem in what refers to soccer. A few meters from Caminito you can find La Bombonera, the mythical stadium of Boca Juniors club. According to Diego Maradona -the most famous Boca fan, La Bombonera is "the temple of global soccer". Here we stop to tour the stadium and enter the museum (tickets not included).
Here ends our tour in the colorful streets of the neighborhood that is the symbol of soccer and tango. An exciting walk where we introduce into the history of tango and Argentine football, and where we understand why the locals are the most exciting fans in the world.
