This is the main avenue running from the Airport up to the Matanza river. We walked from the area close to La Recoleta up to the area close to Av. de Mayo, where most of the attractions are located. If possible do this path during the day and at night to get different views and impressions of the city. It... More

Take the time to walk up and down this boulevard. Yes the sidewalks might needs some work, but the trees are beautiful and the Obelisco is quite a sight both day and night. Lots of people and traffic - but all big cities have these. Enjoy the experience.

This is an amazing street/highway through the middle of the city. Lots of businesses and people walking around. They move a lot of traffic through this corridor and it works well.

We did not have an opportunity to walk around (seems like it would be a challenge anyway, with the constant traffic) but it is very impressive.

Avenido 9 De Julio is very impressive with its seven lanes in each direction and the main avenue of the Argentinian capital. But it is not a beautiful avenue. The traffic is running very fast and not very organized. In the middle of the avenue there is a bus terminal with a lot of buses coming and going. It could... More

This is a HUGE street and while it might be a bit of an adventure to cross, it is nothing special at all. If you are driving, do so carefully.

It is impressively wide. It has seen better times. Too many building owners do not pay attention to esthetics ( not erasing graffiti, not removing old air conditioner units, not cleaning the grime, not removing the large amounts of stepped on chewing gum,etc)

We were told that this is the widest street in the world. It's certainly worth a walk down one day or evening. You'll see a number of great sites and have some good picture taking opportunities.

A busy arterial that cuts through the city...vast parks, large city buildings, banks, monuments, restaurants, etc. This seems to be the gateway to everywhere. Tons of taxis, lots of traffic.

Neighbourhood Profile
San Nicolas
Immersed in the sound of honking horns and the footsteps of busy office workers, the Microcentro area of San Nicolás is where visitors will encounter the true hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires, walking down streets lined with office buildings and banks. The financial district is well-known for its vibrant atmosphere and unstoppable rhythm during office hours. After dark, the hubbub and migrates to Corrientes Ave., where theatre lovers might start their evening at a play and end it in one of the many traditional pizzerias nearby. During the day, Corrientes is known for its many bookshops and classic cafés, which are located just minutes away from some famous landmarks, like the Obelisco, Avenida 9 de Julio, and the Teatro Colon.
