An Introduction to ... Like A Local

“In your hometown, we’re sure you have your favorite places to eat, drink, celebrate, or relax. You probably know the best place to shop, the most beautiful spot to watch the sunset, and the most intimate of cafes to enjoy coffee with a friend. Now, imagine you could learn this kind of information about the places you travel before you even get there. With Michelin and Peter Greenberg’s “Like a Local” series, you’ll know where to go and what to do to ensure the best travel experience, exactly as if you were a local yourself.”

More than a century ago, the founders of our company published the first Michelin Guide as a way to promote driving and give motorists practical information about where to service and repair their cars, find quality accommodations and a good meal. It was a way to get more people driving and help them feel more confident doing it. This part of the business has grown into an entire travel and lifestyle category that now includes travel guides, maps, and of course the MICHELIN hotel & restaurant Guide which has become the global benchmark in gourmet dining.



  • Buenos Aires
  • Q: I’m curious about seeing a show at the Teatro Colón. Should I buy in advance online?
  • A: Seeing a show at Teatro Colón is one of the quintessential experiences of Buenos Aires, but it can also be a bit tricky. Most travelers find it simplest to go through a travel agency to buy tickets, but its possible, not to mention less expensive, to do this on you own. There are two ways to buy tickets: in person and online. Teatro Colón sells tickets on its website The only issue with buying tickets online is that many performances are not listed on the theater website. If you want the full range of events, it’s worth it to stop at the Teatro Colón box office. Plus, the Teatro periodically offers free shows that are not advertized online, so you can only find out about these events if you head there in person.
