Buenos Aires is a place where you can spend amazing time and learn a lot of interesting things, but without a private guide in Buenos Aires, you may miss some most beautiful and interesting tourist sites. As a city, where you can find lots of immigrants from different countries, it has certain specific barrios, or neighborhoods. You will be amazed how many countries influenced the formation of modern Buenos Aires. France is one of them.

The architecture in Buenos Aires bears strong resemblance to the Parisian one, and it is one of the most famous features of this city. You will be able to sense the spirit of the Belle Epoque literally, as you walk along this exquisite neighborhood of Buenos Aires. We usually start our guided tours in Buenos Aires from the San Martin square where we enjoy the site of marvelous residences such as Fernandez Anchorena Palace and the Paz Palace situated around it. The Anchorena Palace is of great importance from the architectural point of view.

Currently it serves as the Apostolic Nunciature in Buenos Aires, and in Argentina as a whole. As regards the Paz Palace, it used to be a mansion in Recoleta barrio, but nowadays it is a social military club. La Recoleta cemetery has a world-wide fame, that’s why we would pay special attention at it. Recoleta as a whole owes its popularity namely to its cemetery. It appeared at the beginning of the 19th century and was designed by a famous French architect Prosper Catelin. There are lots of famous figures buried in La Recoleta cemetery, and some of the graves are visited daily as the place of eternal rest of Eva Peron.
