When coming by plane, the travel takes about ten hours from New York, London, Paris, Madrid and Rome. The city extends on a plain covering 19.4 kilometers (12 miles) from north to south and 17.9 kilometers (11 miles) from east to west.
Approximately three million people live in its 202 square kilometers (78.3 sq miles). However, together with the metropolitan area, the total population of Buenos Aires is above 23 million, making it one of the ten most populated urban centers in the world. In front of its coast, you will find Montevideo, the capital of Uruguay, only 45 minutes away by plane or two hours and a half by ship. A little farther, 1,720 kilometers (1,069 miles), and after a three-hour flight, you arrive at Sao Paulo Brazil, the other global city of South America. The Río de la Plata and the Riachuelo are the natural borders of the City of Buenos Aires to the east and south, respectively. The rest of the metropolitan perimeter is surrounded by the General Paz Avenue from north to west. This avenue provides a fast connection between the city and the Greater Buenos Aires, a densely populated area with important businesses and industries. Buenos Aires has an extended transport system, with connection points such as a port for cruisers and ferries and two airports: Ezeiza for international flights, 22 kilometers (13.7 miles) away from downtown and Aeroparque Jorge Newbery for domestic flights, 6 kilometers (3.7 miles) away from downtown. Buenos Aires is a wonderful place to visit. Once here you will see there is a great variety of things to do: walk along its streets full of history, visit its elegant buildings or just enjoy and relax.
