Railway transportation between Bs.As. en Rosario???

by Erik73

I'm looking into the ways of (passenger)transportation between Bs.As. and Rosario.

I think it would be great for my children (2 boys: 7 and 4) to travel by train.

Can anyone tell whether this is a real and serious way of transportation?

Thanks,

Erik

Not the most comfortable form of transportation and locals have told me that it is not always so safe either.

Sam,

Thank you for your information. Could you or your ocntacts tell in which regard it is not so comfortable (eg. Pullman-class, wouldn't it be something like forst class??).
And evenmore interesting to know what is meant by the safety remark....

We would have thought that travelling by train would be great for our 2 boys, and for us to see the landscape passing by...

I think you would only have two choices to Rosario, Turista or Primera with Primera being the First Class section. As for safety, not sure about this line but in the past there had been robberies on the line serving Mar del Plata. Just use some caution if you decide to indeed brave the train.

Sorry yes indeed on the Ferrocentral you do have the choice of pullman which would be a somewhat private compartment. And as for comfort the train system here is not like Europe, it is rather old and not maintained very well. So the comfort remark was about the service and condition of the train cars. Not all has been maintained too well. But it is a rather short ride to Rosario so suppose it would not be too terrible. Just don't expect too much.

Don't use the reilway system we do have now, because you will have headaches as a result.

You can watch ladscapes and the country by travelling by bus from Buenos Aires.
There are about 5 companies that can carry to Rosario and the have accomodations from suite premium and executive to common class. You will get in time and there is no risk.

Have a nice stay. And before coming to the wedding ask if it formal or casual. If it is formal you need at leat a dark suit. If it is casual, you can dress casually with not very shocking colours.

Thank you so much on your useful info on the railwaysystem... I think we shall indeed travel by bus.

And the wedding party... I think it will be in-the-middle so somewhere in between a suit and casual.

Thnx a lot!

Travel Tips for Rosario

Rosario a nice surprice

by cium

"Pleasantly surprised"

My family and I moved here temporarily this past summer (southern hemisphere summer) and let me tell you how great it has been living here. The city is very pretty; it sits on the Parana river and one can find lots of coffee shops, clothing stores, restaurants, many museums, and if one has kids this place is super kid friendly. Not only do many restaurants provide a room for kids with a sitter so that parents can enjoy their meals in peace, but there are also entire museums and parks devoted to kids such as El Jardin de los Ninios, La Granja de la infancia, La Isla de los inventos, & Museo de los Niños.

"Summer in Rosario"

During the summer this place gets even better. In addition to the many restaurants, cafes, and bars along the river one can hop on a boat enjoy the different islands off the coast and its beaches. One can camp on the islands or stay in a cabin. There are also many water activities to enjoy such as kayaking and sailing.

In town there are also different beaches and public pools to keep one cool during the hot summer months (Balneareo de la Florida for example). There is a huge pool right across a park called Alem that is really nice and right near the river too.

"Museums and beyond"

Rosario also has really great public transportation to take you everywhere in the city (only 1.40 pesos).

In the center of the city there are about 8 blocks for pedestrians only where one can find many shops, bookstores, restaurants, cafes, street performers, etc. etc. It's really nice walking around the pedestrian zone taking a peak at different things, watch the locals go about their business.

Rosario has many many museums, below find a list of some of them:

El Museo de la Bolsa
Museo de Arte Contemporáneo Rosario-
Museo de la Ciudad
Museo de Arte Decorativo
Museo del Paraná y las Islas
Museo de Ciencias Naturales "Angel Gallardo"
Museo de la Memoria
Museo Histórico Provincial "Julio Marc"
Museo "Diario La Capital"
Museo de Arte Sacro "Eduardo Barnes"
Museo Experimental de Ciencias

In addition to the many museums that this city has, there is also really really good theater, music, and live performances of different types.

If you are coming into town for a few days, the best way to learn what is going on is to buy the newspaper La Capital they always devote an entire section on all the activities that are going on in the city. It is particularly good on Fridays and Saturdays.
