What makes Buenos Aires such a fascinating city is its duality – at once European and Latin American, its architecture recalls a faded Paris, but its customs reveal a South America passion – football, tango, mate.
It’s easy to be seduced by the food, since the city is characterised by its many parillas, each offering a steak bigger and juicier than the last.
It’s certainly a buzzing city, that wakes up late and stays up until the early hours – many porteños don’t meet for dinner until 11pm and most nightclubs don’t get going until at least 1am.
Palermo was a great neighbourhood to live in. The liveliest part of the city, it has no shortage of trendy bars and restaurants; a stroll through its tree-lined streets reveals a plethora of craft breweries and burger joints.
