Cruises can be a lot of fun as a way of getting from here to there, or even for the experience of cruising itself, but they may or may not leave you with much time to appreciate all the sights on land. There are many things to see and enjoy in fascinating and cosmopolitan Buenos Aires; however, even if you have a limited amount of time, you can still see most of the city’s top sights, as the majority are located relatively close in neighborhoods like Retiro, Recoleta and Puerto Madero.
No visit to Buenos Aires is complete without a visit to La Recoleta Cemetery, the gorgeous resting place of the city’s rich, famous and/or politically important. Also stroll around Plaza San Martin, an historic oasis downtown; admire the grand clock tower and take a look at the Monument to the Fallen in the Falklands War. Then go gaze up at the Obelisk, a giant icon of Buenos Aires, that stands at the intersection of Corrientes and 9 de Julio.
