Argentineans love a fiesta. When the country celebrates its bicentennial next week the whole nation will be taking part. Instead of the inevitable wet Bank Holiday Weekend in the UK, its not too late to join the party in Buenos Aires. Cox & Kings can still arrange a last minute package if you’re quick.
Next week the capital will be celebrating in style with the party of the century. From 21st-25th May, there will be parades, displays and live entertainment along Buenos Aires’ main boulevard- Avenue 9 de Julio- and spectacular fireworks displays. Red wine will be flowing and street vendors will be cooking huge ‘parilladas’, the Argentine BBQ. One of the highlights of the celebrations will be the grand reopening of the Teatro Colon, regularly listed as one of the five best opera houses in the world. Closed in 2007 for extensive renovations, it will be finally be reopened on Sunday night with a gala concert, re-launching Buenos Aires back onto the cultural world stage.
Cox & Kings can arrange a 7 day / 5 night package at the 5-star Sofitel Buenos Aires including international flights from London with Iberia, flying via Madrid and private transfers from £1,395 per person, based on 2 people sharing. Tickets for performances at the Teatro Colon can be booked, subject to availability, through Cox & Kings.
The Sofitel is located on Arroyo Street surrounded by boutiques and art galleries in chic Recoleta, a short walk from the Teatro Colon. It is a former art deco landmark building dating from 1929 and the interior combines French flair and Argentinean elegance, from its imposing reception to the luxurious guest rooms. There is a renowned French-Mediterranean restaurant and a traditional piano bar serving fine Argentinian wines.
