A stroll along the Avenida de Mayo is necessary. It is tree lined with lots of restaurants with outdoor seating. It crosses Avenida de Julio another big street. You get a very local feel of the city when you walk along this avenue.

Best place to get fairly priced dining, especially pizza. We saw police every few blocks and a good artery to other locales in the city.

Avenida de Mayo is one of the most loveliest streets in Buenos Aires. It is full of shops, coffee shops, and restaurants, as well as beautiful architecture on both sides.

There are many landmarks on this street and in the square at the end. Include this in any tour you take.

This is a beautiful street to stroll down. If you are a people watcher you will be in paradise. Lots of shops, restraunts, outdoor cafes. There is a slight problem with walking here though as it is in disrepair all along the sidewalks on both sides. I would not recommend to anyone who has physical ailments or problems with sight.

Historic street as its name implies. A lot of important or historic buildings can be seen if you walk along this street. Also many cafes and restaurants are located along the street too.

Staying in Montserrat

Neighbourhood Profile
Montserrat
As part of the historic quarter of Buenos Aires, Montserrat is defined by the historical events that took place there and the landmarks that have stood the test of time. The Plaza de Mayo is at the center of this connection to history: countless public demonstrations have passed through this square, going back to the May Revolution of 1810. Walking the streets of Montserrat allows us to imagine what Buenos Aires may have looked like in the past: the Cabildo takes us back to the late 16th century, while the Palacio Barolo and the traditional cafés carry us to the early 20th. Nowadays, the neighbourhood is inundated every day by office workers, buses, and taxis; still, the cobblestones, narrow sidewalks, and subway stations from the 1910s remind us that we are surrounded by history everywhere we look.
