Wine and culture
Combining two of Argentina's most important features
For those that are interested in what makes Argentina a totally unique destination, then these two elements are integral. This well paced itinerary takes in a few of the best regions of the country, offering enough time to really get to know and understand each. Buenos Aires is certainly the centre for the main bulk of the cultural heritage of the country, but a day or so spend wandering through the bustling streets of Mendoza is also highly recommended, as is sampling a few of the outstanding restaurants in and around the lake district.
