A small urban park draws visitors to Plaza Italia, featuring a statue of Giuseppe Garibaldi, who fought in Europe and South America during the 19th century and earned the nickname the "Hero of the Two Worlds." At one corner of the park, you'll see a column brought from the Roman Forum--at more than 2,000 years old, it is one of the most significant monuments in the capital.

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.
