I lived for a while in Córdoba. It is a nice city and the cordobeses are quite funny people. What exactly are you going to do there?

20 days in Cordoba eh?

I assume you're going there for a reason?

Jiménez, por favor, con jota

I take it you will be in Córdoba for a reason, either work or study. I lived in Güemes, but Nueva Córdoba is where most of the nightlife takes place, and it is also next to Parque Sarmiento, the city centre and the Ciudad Universitaria, which is convenient.

The city is not huge but it is very spread out and the bus network is not perfect. Taxis are pretty inexpensive if you have dollars, though. Renting a car can be useful during weekends. You will be there during spring, and there are many cities and towns in the Sierras which are worth visiting on day trips. Alta Gracia is nice, Villa Carlos Paz you will probably go. Traslasierra is my favourite region.

In mid-October you have the Oktoberfest ("Fiesta Nacional de la Cerveza") in Villa General Belgrano, a town populated mostly by descendants of German immigrants with many small breweries. If you plan to go, make sure you book a hotel room in advance, as the place gets very crowded.

I'm hoping to learn all about Córdoba and perhaps the surrounding area in the short time I'm there..
Seems an odd place to choose.....a few days yes but 20?

I've never been to Cordoba but my wife has relations from Santa Rosa who went to university then settled there after completing their studies. From talking to them it's an okay place but more for the surrounding countryside than the city itself.

My only memories of Cordoba took place on a UA 777 from MIA. You ask, "When did UA serve COR?" Why, the day of my first trip to Buenos Aires back in the late 90s.
(I never left the airplane.)

20 days in Córdoba just for tourism? Heck, why not, I guess.

The city itself is okay, in two days you will have seen pretty much everything. Then get yourself a car or hop into a bus and start exploring the small towns and cities of Córdoba province.

Are you staying in a hotel? A short-term lease might be cheaper than a hotel considering how long you are staying.

I hope those of you who have visited will share your memories of Córdoba here. Stories about unexpected surprises, friendly people... and even cautionary tales.

I promise to do the same, if it's useful/interesting to the community.

I'm going to visit Cordoba in 3 weeks time. But I take a zero of your stay. i'll do 2 days. I guess for the city it's enough.?

2 days is perfect for Córdoba.

As a recommendation, I was in Córdoba last January with the girlfriend and we stayed at Y111, a four-star hotel at Hipólito Yrigoyen 111, in Nueva Córdoba. I don't have previous experiences with hotels in Córdoba as I rented a flat when I lived there, but this hotel we both really liked. It was inaugurated last year, and the facilities are very nice. Plus it's right at the city centre.
