Ricky Villa's Tour of Buenos Aires

Former Tottenham Hotspurs football star Ricardo "Ricky" Villa takes us on a tour of Buenos Aires, Argentina. Villa: "To arrive in Buenos Aires is to find oneself somewhere at once deeply familiar and entirely new".

Buenos Aires is sometimes called 'the Paris of the South'. With its mix of old world charm and new world edginess, Buenos Aires has an electricity about it that is hard to describe, but impossible not to notice. Argentina began as a backwater of Spain's South American colonies but by the early 20th Century had risen to become one of the richest nations in the world. The expression 'rich as an Argentine' was bandied about in Europe, as boatloads of portenos landed on the continent - often with servants in tow - to do the grand tour.
