Palermo is a north eastern area of Buenos Aires, the capital city of Argentina. It is the largest neighbourhood of Buenos Aires and is situated close to the city’s port. Palermo is a buzzing and trendy part of town, a great place to stay as a tourist, with all sorts of attractions including great shopping, fabulous restaurants, tango shows, cute cafes and elegant tree lined streets. What makes this area so appealing however are the impressive parks and green areas of the barrio, allowing you to escape and relax in open spaces such as the Botanical Gardens, Zoological Gardens, Japanese Garden and the “Bosques de Palermo” (Forests of Palermo) which was inspired by the Bois de Boulogne of Paris, a forest on the outskirts of Paris behind the Arc de Triomphe.
Palermo itself is subdivided into several smaller neighbourhoods, each with their own character and style. The subdivisions are called Alto Palermo, Palermo Viejo, Palermo Soho, Palermo Hollywood, Palermo Chico and Las Cañitas. Palermo Viejo, the oldest part of Palermo, (as the name suggests) was once the home of Che Guevara and the childhood home of author Jorge Luis Borges. Palermo Chico and Las Cañitas are mostly upper class residential areas full of luxury condominiums and fantastic sites such as the National Museum of Decorative Arts and the Museum of Latin American Art. Alto Palermo, Palermo Hollywood and Palermo Soho are better known for their shopping areas and bustling night life. Picturesque Palermo Soho however has a rather bohemian feel compared to its neighbours as it has an alternative and avant garde ambience making it popular with young middle class locals with a thriving art and street culture scenechristmas inflatables, consequently attracting many tourists and is a highly recommended area to stay in.
