“Strollin'”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2013

Beautiful Avenida to walk all the way from Plaza the Mayo, across Av 9 de Julio to the end at the National Congress.
Check out the beautiful architecture and green spaces during the day. At night you can choose from many bars and restaurants with outdoor terraces. Just sit back, relax and watch everything that comes by.

“Beautiful boulevard that recalls the greatness and pride of old Buenos Aires”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2013

Not a ton to say here- this is beautiful tree lined street that connects the old palace with the congress building. It's worth a stroll from end to end. It has lots of classic French architecture that was erected when the city celebrated Argentina's centennial in the late 19th century. You really feel like you're walking around Paris on a spring day. You'll often see protests and gatherings as these are popular community congregation sites. Great area to bum around for half a day or so.

“Ave de Mayo, Buenos Aires Argentina”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 December 2012

I just love the architecture, it was so beautiful and it made you look and appreciate the beauty that must have existed in the 1920s to 1950s. It is sad that most of the buildings need major maintenance, and that the country is not doing so well economically. I hope one day all the buildings will be restored and Buenos Aires will shine again as it is truly a beautiful city.
