Buenos Aires is Argentina's most famous city, which has been an international playground for as long as its perhaps more celebrated neighbour, Rio. It's nothing if not bustling and vibrant – a complete sensory experience. It has accumulated over 250 theatres in its history, which is hardly surprising, given that this is the home country of Evita. It also excels at opera houses, with its Teatro Colón long ago having been named the third best on the planet by no less a well-travelled critic than National Geographic. The city is also an international gay tourism destination, with many venues and activities welcoming tourists in this market. In short, it's a city that welcomes everyone, as you'll find out when you buy or sell Buenos Aires event tickets on StubHub.
Football and rugby reign in Buenos Aires
Buenos Aires is Argentina's capital for two of the sports at which it is most accomplished in world ranks: football and rugby. No city on earth has been able to match it for football teams – it has at times had an astonishing 24 professional teams all playing at the same time. It's also home to one of the biggest footballing rivalries on earth, between River Plate and Boca Juniors. Buckle up if you want to experience full-on Argentinian football frenzy here: it will be a high point of your sporting life. Buenos Aires has also always been the home of the Pumas, Argentina's national rugby team, and began fielding a successful Super Rugby team, the Jaguares, when the competition expanded to South America. Tickets to these games are readily available on StubHub. And when you're booking your Buenos Aires event tickets, look for performances by the Buenos Aires Tango Company. You won't find any finer exponents of the national dance.
A world of culture in Buenos Aires
For more on the cultural side in Buenos Aires, book tickets to see the Buenos Aires Philharmonic Orchestra and prepare to hear classical music with an unforgettable Latin flair. In similar vein, there's the Buenos Aires Ballet, which has established a sterling international reputation, drawing crowds since its inception. For a varied programme of theatre, visit Cervantes Theatre, which boasts three different performance venues in one.
Further exploring Argentina
From Buenos Aires, rugby fans should immediately head straight across to Mendoza to catch a Pumas test match. It's a town that has gone down in rugby history as an uncompromising place for visiting teams, that always delivers a match worth talking about. For something more sedate, Cirque de Soleil OVO has made a home there. You can then easily reach Rosario, which has a very busy calendar of motorsport events. Add a visit to La Plata, where you'll find numerous cultural centres and theatres to visit. Tickets to events are always available on StubHub.
