BUENOS AIRES, ARGENTINA
THE TANGO began in the working-class districts of Buenos Aires in the 19th century, and as you explore the colourful neighbourhoods of Argentina’s unique capital, you will hear the sounds of this passionate dance all around you. Boasting a vibrant arts scene, the city itself is one giant canvas, with a wealth of life-size murals adorning streets everywhere you look.
