  • 9 de Julio Avenue is the main and largest Avenue of the city of Buenos Aires and has a width of 140 metres. Ideal place for a walk and get to know the city.

  • Fields Elysées (Paris) or Av Refroma (Cd of Mexico) are before this great Avenue, as all them touring to foot can be tired if not is has condition further that there is much movement of trucks, but can see different buildings important and rich architecture and the Obelisk or the theatre Colon, perhaps can take the Toribus or Hop on Hop off , but for my 40 USD per person, was expensive so I did it on foot and Sun, he was a little tired but it was worth the 30 min who engaged him.

  • excellent option for a good walk. A wide Avenue, with traffic well organized, Woody and still counts with the obelisk, a historical monument. Worth walk
