Diego Maradona Tours in Buenos Aires

Diego Maradona Tours in Buenos Aires

Diego Armando Maradona, considered one of the best soccer players of all time, grew up in Buenos Aires and spent his formative footballing years playing for club teams in the capital. Here’s how soccer fans can learn about Maradona in Buenos Aires.

Follow in Maradona's Footsteps

Trace the retired soccer star's time in Buenos Aires on a football-centric tour of sites linked to Maradona’s personal and professional life in the city. Travelers can visit the Church of the Blessed Sacrament, where Maradona was married, and spend some time at the Argentinos Juniors Club, where he played his first professional games. No soccer tour would be complete without a visit to the Bombonera, the Boca Juniors stadium where Maradona played for much of his career. Tour the locker rooms and stands, catch a glimpse of Maradona’s private box and visit the museum that honors the team he so loved.

Stadium Tours and Museums

Maradona falls on the Boca Juniors side of the great Buenos Aires soccer rivalry, but true fans of the sport will want to visit the stadiums and museums of both Boca Juniors and River Plate, their bitter rival. After touring the Bombonera, head to El Monumental, the River Plate stadium where Maradona was the admired enemy. El Monumental has its own museum highlighting its stars.

City Sightseeing Tours

Save money (and make the best use of your time in the capital) by booking a two-day package that includes both a behind-the-scenes stadium tour and a Buenos Aires walking tour. Visitors can spend a Maradona-filled morning at La Bombonera before taking an afternoon to explore El Monumental. The next day, see the city's most important sites and monuments, including the Obelisco, Plaza de Mayo, Caminito, Puente de la Mujer (Bridge of Women) and the iconic Recoleta Cemetery. This is a good option for those with limited time in the city.
