  • It's a walk over the pictures, or for anyone who is a fan of comic books. The characters are laid out on the street and you can see the itinerary of the tour to go through them all on the site of the city. The most famous character, Mafalda, has lined up to take a picture.

  • Part of the great magic of the old Buenos Aires. Get ready to walk and enjoy every subway ride. There are corners touching evoking characters from our childhood. Safety pin!

  • Very nice experience, the complete tour is posted on the page of the Government of the city, with a map. I suggest to make him periodic sculptures maintenance since they are a little damaged by the dirt and the effects of the climate.

Where to stay in Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires offers an impressive selection of budget-friendly and mid-range lodgings, as well as pricier, more luxurious options for visitors who don't mind splashing out. Good rooms are scattered across town, but your best bet for economical hostels remains San Telmo, a neighborhood on the edge of downtown. For boutique establishments and international five-star hotels, head to Palermo, Recoleta, or Puerto Madero, upscale neighborhoods drawing the majority of foreign visitors.
