DETAILED ITINERARY

1

Buenos Aires
Arrival in Buenos Aires and Transfer to Hotel.

Depart from the hotel towards the southern end of the city where most of the tango places are located. The tango is the music of Buenos Aires. It originated in the 1880 ghettos which were populated by Italian and Spanish immigrants, Africans and gauchos. From this intersection rose the “Compraditos,” whose songs, lyrics, and dances reflect “el duelo de cuchilleros, ” or knife fights characteristic of the social ambience. The tango rose from a mix of Cuban and Spanish rhythms, some polka, and according to some, also a bit of African music. Its lyrics, difficult to understand and impossible to translate, are profoundly poetic. Each song has a story to tell about the city, its history and its people. In spite of its humble origins in the ghettos and brothels of the 1920’s, the tango rose to the salons of the upper classes. The area of Abasto was the birthplace of the undisputed icon of the tango, Carlos Gardel, otherwise known as the “Morocho (dark-haired one) of the Abasto,” icon of the tango in Argentina and all over the world.

On a street named after Gardel, there is a statue of him near the building that was once called, “El Chanta Cuatro,” a restaurant where he and all the colorful personalities of Mercado Abastos gathered. This location, where young Carlos got together with his friends, opened its doors in 1893. Today, more than 100 years later, history repeats itself in the same building which reopened as the unsurpassable themed restaurant known as “Esquina Carlos Gardel,” where the tango lives on. At “Esquina Carlos Gardel” one can enjoy excellent cuisine, an art noveau style of decor which faithfully recreates the sophistication of the most luxurious salons of the epoch, latest generation technical facilities, an artistic offering of the highest level and a mythical atmosphere ideal for an unforgettable evening.
At midnight return to the hotel.

Buenos Aires
On an unforgettable route, we will live all the porteño magic. These few hours feature all the magic of Argentina’s capital city. In this most complete overview of the Paris of South America we will visit the glamorous neighborhoods of Recoleta and its most famous cemetery, Palermo, May Square and the Pink House, the Metropolitan Cathedral, the newest & trendiest Puerto Madero Area and many other emblematic buildings and palaces of unique architectural, historical, and cultural value. The visit would not be complete without the sights of the first settlements of the city of Buenos Aires. The pintoresque neighborhood of San Telmo, residence to the porteño aristocracy until the end of the XIX century and where the renowned antiques market is held every Sunday; Caminito Street, in the colorful, Italian immigrants neighborhood of La Boca.

Transfer to airport to take flight to Mendoza. Reception at Mendoza Airport and transfer to hotel.

Mendoza
One of the most productive oasis in Mendoza is the amazing Valle de Uco, including the departments of San Carlos, Tunuyán and Tupungato. It combines vast valleys and impressive white mountains, creating this wine region called ‘high altitude vineyards’. The soil, microclimate with hot afternoons and cool nights, and the particular feature of grapes growing at over 1,000 m above the sea level make up for the best conditions to produce wine of the greatest quality. Surrounded by fields growing potatoes, sunflowers, walnut trees, almond trees, chestnut trees and vineyards —in the valley at the foot of the majestic Cordón del Plata and Tupungato volcano— we will visit different wineries and taste carefully produced and internationally awarded wines. Lunch is optional.
