  1. Hi – these sound great, some interesting ways to see the city. Buenos Aires Local Tours run a daily free tour from Plaza Italia. Travelling by colectivo (public bus) we visit Gardel’s barrio of Abasto, another colectivo to Congreso and then by an original 1930’s subway train to Plaza de Mayo. Using public transport is a different and fascinating way to see the sights of Buenos Aires from another angle.
