Of course you will walk down this street- it is the happenin' place in BA! I was here for 4 days, and saw this street transform each day. One day there is a farmers market, another day a Brazilian festival. There was a major Zumba dance party, and people out partying all day and night long. Without the festivities, the... More

Walked down Avenida de Mayo on our way to Plaza de Mayo (well worth a visit). The street is a busy thoroughfare with shops and eateries and is a pleasant rather than spectacular walk.

This avenue leads to - La casa rosada at one end and Plaza congreso at the other end. There are lots of cafes and restaurants along avenida de Mayo in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Occasionally you will see people voicing their opinion regarding the country's politics. Other times you will see multi-cultural festivals and street markets and there are some shops.

If you have the time to stroll almost the length of this avenida , you'll come across several gems and tourists spots. However it can be tiring to do on a very hot day as Buenos Aires was really hot with 35*C temperatures the days we were there.

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.

Staying in Montserrat

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
