Considered the “Lungs of the City” ride past the city zoo on our way to the Rose Garden tucked in the Palermo Woods district. Stop and smell the roses as you stroll through the beautifully landscaped garden trails. *Note- Rose Garden and Botanical Garden closed on Mondays.
Directing our wheels towards Recoleta, we stop along the way visiting the Spanish Monument, Plaza Evita, the Metal Flower, the University of Buenos Aires Law School, National Library, Institute of San Martin and, of course, the famous Recoleta Cemetery.
Next, the picturesque neighborhood of Palermo awaits us as we follow the bike paths through Parque Las Heras and then stop along the way for lunch and beverages. Cycling through Palermo Soho, we see the boutique shops, lively bars and restaurants and more of what makes this neighborhood one of the fastest-growing and ‘trendiest’ neighborhoods of the city. Our last stop of the day is in Plaza Serrano which is always full of life.
