To be candid, if you find yourself in Cordoba for the day you may struggle to find activities to fill your hours. The city is the second-largest in Argentina and known for its Spanish colonial architecture — and lack of things to do. Here’s are a few worthwhile things to do in the city to ensure you leave with good memories.

 

Get Cultured

Avoid the notorious heat in Cordoba by ducking inside the air-conditioned Evita Fine Arts Museum. The museum holds pieces from artists such as Goya and Picasso and you can easily spend a few hours wandering through more than 500 pieces of art. Be sure to check out the sculpture garden out back.

 

Dine in an Alley

Set inside a converted alleyway, El Papagayo Restaurant is an elegant, tasteful lunch and dinner restaurant well-known as one of the best eateries in the city. They serve three- and 11-course tasting menus with an optional wine pairing that are well worth a trip into the heart of the city.

 

Take a Free Walking Tour

There’s no better way to get a grasp on the city than by taking a free walking tour. LaDocta leads two free walking tours a day at 11 a.m. and 5 p.m., exploring the historic center and the bohemian/student neighborhood.

 

Go on a (Cheap) Shopping Spree

Cordoba is a style hunter’s dream. Boutiques are plentiful and relatively inexpensive compared to American stores. Start at Paseo de las Artes to search through traditional artisan stores and wander through the streets from there.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.

Amazon Fire TV Sticks Allow for Streaming Multiple Services

Cable is so expensive, sometimes it is easier to just pay monthly for subscription services like Hulu and Netflix. Some TVs come with those applications already installed, but, if not ,you have to use your laptop and a HDMI cord, which takes a while to set up. Instead, get an Amazon Fire TV Stick.

Rental Cars Offer Flexibility for Business, Leisure or Both

Bleisure — it’s a term we’re all familiar with these days. After all, millennials drive the rising trend, combining business and leisure trips regularly. Take a few days to decompress in a new destination after a hectic schedule of meetings and business.
