Buenos Aires Walking Tour - For people who enjoy walking the best way to see a city is on foot. Tours can be designed to suit the interests of the individual or group. From the historic Plaza de Mayo dominated by the salmon-coloured Government House (Casa Rosada) from whose balcony Eva PerÃ³n addressed the masses, the Avenida de Mayo leads past the art-nouveau CafÃ© Tortoni where the intellectual elite of the day still gather to drink coffee and Legui, across the broad 9th of July Avenue and along the leafy streets to the monumental Palace of Congress. Turning right along Callao Avenue, crossing the busy and glamorous shopping avenue of Santa FÃ©, you eventually reach the Recoleta area. With its broad esplanade of cafÃ©s, the famous cemetery where the country's great are buried and a contemporary art and design centre to rival that of London or New York.
