For those seeking history and culture amid a less-touristy city, Córdoba, Argentina, packs a punch. Known for its Spanish Colonial architecture, 17th-century churches and city-meets-rural atmosphere, Córdoba blends culture and nature for budget travelers.

 

Begin with breakfast at Mercado Norte, a local market open 7 a.m.–7 p.m., five days a week; 7 a.m.–2 p.m., Saturday, and closed Sunday. The market is conveniently located and offers locals goods, produce and fresh cuisine at a fair price.

 

Spend the day walking around, seeing the sights and enjoying the beautiful, old-world architecture. Take yourself on a day tour and explore the city by foot for free and stop at the many green areas. The local parks, including Park España, Plaza del Bicentario and Sarmiento Park are all free and within walking distance of Zoo Córdoba and Museo Emilio Caraffa.

 

Take in the arts and culture of the museum and stroll along the museum trails before heading to the Jesuit Block and Estancias of Córdoba. This World Heritage site is open to the public every day, but Monday, and is also known as Museum in Alta Gracia.

 

The city is literally filled with free, or close-to-it, attractions all offering century-old history and important landmarks. Enjoy all the free fun you can, because you’re going to want to save your pennies for a night out.

 

Check out El Papagayo’s fine-dining experience with incredible dishes, only matched by the ambiance. Another option, Standard 69 offers a more casual aesthetic with fresh ingredients and local inspiration.

Ristorante Consorzio, Turin, Italy

Ristorante Consorzio is almost as famous for its selection of fine cheeses as its delicious wines. After one evening dining here I understand why. The selections of both are extensive and top-notch, and feature a variety of each from around the country.
