Program Excursions

While participating on a CISabroad program, you'll be able to take part in built-in day trips at no additional cost. These trips are subject to change from term to term; listed below are excursions that have run in the past.

Plaza de Mayo

The city centre of Buenos Aires, Plaza de Mayo has been the scene of the most momentous events in Argentine history, as well as the largest popular demonstrations in the country. On the occasion of the one-year anniversary of the May Revolution in 1811, the Pirámide de Mayo (English: May Pyramid) was inaugurated in the square’s hub, becoming Buenos Aires’ first national monument. It hosts the government house, the Buenos Aires Cathedral and the Cabildo, the site of Spain’s administration back in colonial times.

Puerto Madero

The newest neighborhood in Buenos Aires, Puerto Madero hosts a beautiful waterfront, 5 star hotels, an ecological reserve and contemporary architecture. We walk from Plaza de Mayo down to the river – a great place to enjoy a Mate picnic! The most emblematic point for a picture is the Women’s Bridge, a stunning feat of engineering as well as a work of art. Its design resembles a hook or a tooth of some sort, but actually, the architect Santiago Calatrava designed the bridge to look like a couple dancing the tango. The bridge is pedestrian only, and rotates a full 90 degrees to allow ships to pass by.

Tigre

A welcome escape from the busier districts in Buenos Aires, Tigre is a tranquil setting surrounded by bodies of water and nature. Your visit may include a ferry ride to an island just off the coast, a tour of the fruit market, or a trek through a nature reserve.
