The La Boca walking tour takes you around one of the most colourful and traditional neighbourhoods in Buenos Aires, where the people live and breathe football and tango.
La Boca Walking Tour
The tour meets in the morning in the most famous corner of La Boca, where Calle Caminito and Calle Magallanes meet. From there we'll begin our guided route around one of the most authentic and vibrant areas of Buenos Aires.
Your guide will lead you down the most famous street in the area, el Caminito, know for its technicolour and ramshackle buildings this sun-dappled part of the neighbourhood looks as if it's been torn from the pages of a Pixar movie. Then you'll be led to the old industrial port of the Argentinian capital, where we'll talk about the seafaring past of the city on the banks of the Rio de la Plata.
Next, we'll head to the Plaza de los Bomberos Voluntarios (square of the volunteer firemen), one of the liveliest spaces in the area, and a common meeting place for musicians and artists, admiring once more the lively hodge-podge of colour present throughout the neighbourhood.
The La Boca walking tour then takes you down Brandsen street, where you will discover the intense relationship between this neighbourhood and Argentina's two national dances: football and tango. And our tour ends at the gates to the Bombonera Stadium, one of the greatest footballing temples not only in Argentina, but the world over whilst your guide, with passion typical of your average Argentinian football fan, explains the relationship between CA Boca Juniors and daily life in the area.
