Afterwards you will stroll through the picturesque streets of the San Telmo neighborhood, known for its impressive history and the Argentinian typical products recognized worldwide such as the mate and dulce de leche.

In the heart of this neighborhood, you will also explore the emblematic San Telmo Market and the premises of two of the most important Argentinian silversmiths. Finally, you will get some rest and enjoy a coffee in a traditional Café.
