"Palermo Soho" Palermo District Tip by easterntrekker

Palermo District, Buenos Aires: 19 reviews and 25 photos


Sat we headed to the market in Palermo area. We caught the subway D line from a ten minute walk from our San Telmo area and got off in Plaza Italia.

It was a good 8 block walk to the market area but interesting to browse along the way. We stopped in a Music Store where Pat was pretty interested in a Les Paul guitar he spotted .Sadly he realized it was priced in $ and not pesos ,so we continued.
We realised quickly that this is a much more upscale area than San Telmo .Lovely tree lined streets , no garbage in the streets or broken sidewalks. There are some wonderful restaurants , and lots of shopping .
I think if we had our days over we would have booked to stay here instead.Oh well.
We p[lan to return here to take in some of the gardens and maybe do more shopping.

Address: Plaza Italia

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
