We recommend to make a stop at one of the most emblematic cafes here in Buenos Aires: Cafe Tortoni, an iconic French-style café opened in 1858 and a favorite venue for the cultural elite with live tango. An important part of the history of Buenos Aires is present on its marble tables and walls, since among its most prominent clients were the writers Jorge Luis Borges, Luigi Pirandello, Federico García Lorca and Julio Cortázar, as well as the musicians Arthur Rubinstein and the mythical Carlos Gardel.
