  La Boca Stadium
by VeronicaG

You'd be doing yourself a favor if you take a tour of the city before venturing out. A shuttle bus picked us up at our hotel, then at Vincente Lopez ave. we changed vehicles to join a large bus filled with other tourists. After a show of hands, countries represented were Chile, Japan, Norway, Venezuela, Mexico and the United States.

We passed picturesque Recoleta Cemetery and headed for Palermo. Our bus paused at a park by the Casa Rosada (where the President has his office) to allow us to take pictures. Across from the park we could view the National Cathedral.

We then headed for San Telmo ,the oldest part of the city where we were shown examples of colonial architecture. At LaBoca (the colorful artists area) we were given time to tour the soccer stadium--home of the Boca,Jrs.--visit souvenir shops and view the artwork along the streets. Next we drove past the floating casino then soon afterward headed back to a shuttle that delivered us to our hotels.

On this particular bus tour a special photo was taken of each passenger and presented to us before departing the vehicle. YOU'LL LOVE THIS PHOTO!! The tour was 3 hours plus. We also received a tango CD that was great!
