    Never ending narratives
    A vibrant, energetic city with an engaging architecture and history. Travel by Sub-Te is a must but in contemporary times the original, first constructed Metro Line with its early 20th Century carriages is now closed. There is an abundance of night life, restaurants, eating halls etc that is patronised by the 'Portenos' and devoid of the tourist. Do your homework!

    Run across the boulevard when the walk sign begins
    OMG, there are so many bus and car lanes, that the majority of pedestrians only make it about half way across the boulevard before the permitted walking indicator ends. All lanes are generally fairly busy from 7:00 am to 11:00 pm. In the downtown core, there are lots of hotels on this avenue. The busiest portion centres around the obelisk.

    Large street with impressive buildings and parks
    I don't think this is actually the widest street in the world, but it has plenty of lanes of traffic! We didn't have a car so were near it only on foot. We appreciated the fact that in some locations there were beautiful and shady parks in the median between the two directions of traffic - not quite peaceful since you can still hear the traffic, but a nice resting spot. We spent much of a day in the area, seeing the nearby Teatro Colon, and El Obelisco (in yet another median). The street itself isn't really an attraction, but it's an impressive way to get to the place you want to see.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The Avenida 9 De Julio is one of the main thoroughfares in BA and the general meeting place for all demonstrations or celebrations (like the world cup championship). The avenue is huge, accommodating over 1 million people at a time and all along the avenue are monuments to various people and events. Make sure to notice the two pictures of Eva Peron outlined on the department of education building at the center of the avenue (one on each side of the building) and the obelisk marking the raising of the Argentina flag for the first time.

A huge street said to be the widest in the world with the obelisk in the middle and the image of Eva Peron on one of the buildings. Electronic advertising boards abound.

To build the widest avenue in the world, many beautiful homes and structures were torn down. How unfortunate! We were told by our guide that the French refused to abandon their embassy. And so today, this is where the avenue ends. We crossed it several times during our 3 day visit to Buenos Aires. It’s difficult to avoid as a tourist. One can see the obelisk here, one of the city’s landmarks.

Just massive. Don't know that I've ever taken the time to think about a street for any length of this but this one is in a class of its own. They say it's the widest in the world and they may be right. Never seen the likes of it.

At the very center of the city, next to the theaters. Great balcony view on a huge loft, soberly decorated. Fine breakfast served properly on the room. Front desk, very kind, also same with all other employees we treat.
