Full day in Palermo: Parks, culture and much to know!

In addition to our Free Tours in Buenos Aires, we also have suggested itineraries. These are tours that you can do on your own. In this case we introduce you a full day in Palermo.

Visit Palermo Parks

Palermo is a huge neighborhood, in fact, it is the largest in the city of Buenos Aires, subdivided with several different names, which only porteños can understand the limits (Palermo Viejo, Palermo Soho, etc).

In turn, there are multiple green spaces that can be visited and enjoyed, close to tourist areas and accommodation.
One of the most beautiful places is the Rosedal: rose gardens mixed with trees, bridges and important monuments.
Crossing Avenida Alcorta you can see the park where the Planetarium is.

In this note, you can find more information about the Parks of Palermo.

Here are two options to choose from:

A) Botanical Garden, Street Art & Traditional Music

  • Enter to the Botanical Garden: free entry to the most complete vegetation space in the city. Endemic and foreign species meet in the middle of the city of Buenos Aires. Also, inside there is a beautiful neo-medieval castle. Here we tell you more!

    I am looking forward to coming to Buenos Aires soon.
    Can you clarify – you advertise free walking graffiti tour in Palermo on Monday to SATURDAY.
    However, your ” Full day in Palermo” page states no graffiti tours on weekends and further down the page it states only on Monday to Friday.
    Do you have the graffiti walking tour on a Saturday ??
    Thank you for your help
