The colourful and atmospheric La Boca district is a must for any visitors to Buenos Aires.

Settled by Italian immigrants, this working-class port neighbourhood has the most colourfully painted metal houses you can imagine. The area is home to many artists who can be seen displaying their crafts along the walkways. Tango can often be seen danced in the streets. A really great place!
