Feel Bueno in Buenos Aires

The Argentinian capital of Buenos Aires provides fun for the whole family as a holiday destination. Below are Nightly.travel‘s top picks for activities and sights to see/do in the city.

Embrace the Culture

Enjoy a fine Steak – The Argentinians are famous for their food, especially their steak. They hold an asado (gathering for a barbecue) which is a huge part of Argentinian culture.

There are many fine steakhouses in Buenos Aires, but our recommendation is the Cabana Las Lilas. The famous establishment is pricey, but certainly worth it!

Learn some New Moves – The Tango originates from Buenos Aires and there’s no better place to learn the famous dance. Whether you choose to go see the professionals or you attend a ‘milonga’, where locals dance in the street, is up to you – both are equally as enjoyable!

Visit the San Telmo Market – Not many markets attract over 12,000 visitors each week, but that’s exactly what San Telmo market does. The market has stalls for art, souvenirs, antiques and snacks.

Be Entertained

Watch Polo – A great day out for all, the Polo is very popular in Buenos Aires, especially between September and November. Watch the game surrounded by beautiful architecture at the Palermo Hippodrome and even put a cheeky bet on if you’re feeling lucky!

Enjoy a Show – Buenos Aires is home to one of the most amazing Opera houses in the world. The Teatro Colon opened in 1857 and has been putting on amazing shows ever since. Make sure to check out their schedule to see if you can see a spectacle during your time in the Argentinian capital.

Visit a Museum – Buenos Aires isn’t usually known for its museums, however, the Argentinian city certainly has some that are worth checking out. The Museo Evita and the Museo Nacional Ferroviario Raul Scalabrini Ortiz are definitely two that are on the top of our lists.

The Once in a Lifetime Moments

See a Football Match – Buenos Aires has the highest concentration of football teams of any city in the world. There are 24 professional teams in the city and it’s worth checking fixture lists before you visit the city to see if you can catch a game.

Take a Day Cruise – Whether to relax or as a unique way to see the Buenos Aires sights, a boat tour is a fantastic activity for all and also something that’s not available in every city. Buenos Aires has a plethora of boat tours available and it’s certainly worth looking for one when you’re visiting Argentina.

See Stockholm in a Whole New Way with Nightly.travel

The most populous city in the Nordics, Stockholm is the capital of Sweden and is home to nearly 900,000 people.

As well as being Sweden’s most populous city, the capital also welcomes over 2,000,000 visitors-per-year. It’s no surprise many travellers visit Stockholm, as there’s a plethora of activities and sights the city has to offer.

Whether you’re staying for a long weekend, a week or even longer you’ll struggle to experience the whole of the city in one stay – unless you take the Nightly.travel approach, combine 2 hotels for your stay instead of 1.

What to do in Stockholm

The Sights

The Sunset from Monteliusvägen Cliff Path

Not only a fantastic place for a selfie with a panoramic view of Stockholm in the background, the Monteliusvagen cliff path also is a great place to see a beautiful natural sight – sunset.

Don’t worry about getting chilly if you’re visiting in the winter months, the path has plenty of cafes for you to grab a nice hot drink to keep you warm.

Changing of the Guard

Every summer, three-times-a-week there’s a 40-minute performance where the guards walk from the Army Museum or Cavalry Barracks with a marching band to then partake in the royal guard ceremony in the main courtyard.

The ceremony usually begins around 11:45am – it’s worth double-checking beforehand to avoid disappointment!

Secret Gardens of Tantolunden Park

Labelled as one of the most colourful parks, the ‘Instagram -famous’ Tantolunden park is filled with a beautiful array of flower beds and terracotta miniature homes.

The park also has a multitude of activities including mini-golf and outdoor gyms for visitors to enjoy. Winter is a fantastic time to go for all those who love a toboggan ride!

Enjoy the Cuisine

The Best Meatballs Around

Sweden is very famous for its delicious meatballs and there is no better place to taste the delicacy than in the Swedish capital. Many recommend the Old Town, however, this is very much a tourist trap. Many recommend the Södermalm district to get the best prices.

Have a Breakfast with a View

The theatre Bio Rio hosts a breakfast at 10:30 every Sunday. Seen as the perfect hangover cure, you can choose between a huge selection of yoghurts or even have a famous Swedish open sandwich.

As well as tucking into a fine breakfast, you’ll also get to watch a movie, sitting in red velvet seats – so just kick back and relax!

Be Involved in the Action!

Party till Dawn

Stockholm has loads of nightclubs with lots of varied themed nights. A couple of clubs that deserve a special mention are the Open-air Club, unique in the fact it sits beneath a gigantic concrete bridge and the Berns music festival – where modern bands play in a 19th-century setting.

Exercise with a View

For those who just can’t go a week without a bit of exercise, there are plenty of spots with beautiful views. One particular example is Kungsholmen Island – the island is 9.5 km and many people choose to run, or sometimes walk, around it to get their daily steps in!

If you’re more of a swimmer, Långholmen island is a fantastic place to relax and take a dip. The island is also a perfect place to have a picnic – although it’s more of a grassy area rather than sand.

Enjoy a Tipple

Stockholm is home to a plethora of clubs and bars and just picking a few is a task easier said than done. Although a couple of bars to look out for are: Ångbåtsbryggan is a unique bar that floats on the water – very unique, but it’s also worth mentioning it is quite pricey.

Another bar to make sure you visit is Tak. Opened in 2017, the bar is on the rooftop and offers some of the best views of Stockholm.
