This vibrant city is active 24 hours a day. People call it “the city that never sleeps”- with its countless restaurants, bars, theatres, tanguerías, pubs, night clubs, museums, shopping centers, art galleries, and even a floating casino on the river. Buenos Aires combines modern and historical places; European culture with Latin American spirit, which results in a very unique and magical identity.
