Synopses & Reviews
Whether you are planning to visit a city, a region or a country, DK's foolproof 'Eyewitness' approach makes learning about a place a pleasure in itself. All the traditional guidebook subject matter is covered-descriptions of sights, opening times, hotels, restaurants, shopping, entertainment, phrase books etc- but, with the help of specially commissioned illustrations and maps, DK makes essential information easy to access and quick to absorb. No other guides explain the history of a place as clearly in words and pictures. DK Eyewitness Travel Guides-the best guides ever created.
Argentina's vibrant, wonderfully idiosyncratic capital, Buenos Aires, is the third largest city in Latin America, yet it is a resolutely human kind of place. Famous for its tango, football and European-style architecture, it also holds hidden gems, including picturesque cobbled neighborhoods, sophisticated shopping and some of the best and most varied cuisine in the whole continent. Cinemas and art galleries, jazz clubs and theatres, atmospheric caf's and antiques markets abound, while exercising or just lazing around in beautifully landscaped parks filled with subtropical vegetation are part of the dynamic yet laid-back porte-o lifestyle.
Col. ill. and col. maps on inside covers.
Whether salsa dancing in Buenos Aires or seal spotting in Punta Norte, Eyewitness Travel Guide: Argentina provides insider tips every visitor needs, with comprehensive listings of the best hotels, restaurants, shops and nightlife for all budgets. Fully illustrated and covering all the major areas from The Pampas and Patagonia to Cuyo and the Wine Country, there are 3D cutaways and floor-plans of all the must-see sites — including Plaza de Mayo, Teatro Colon and Santa Catalina. Eyewitness Travel Guide: Argentina explores the culture, history and architecture, not missing the best in entertainment, shopping, tours and scenic walks, in this unique country.
