Avenida 9 De Julio, Buenos Aires

4.1
Touted as the widest street in the world, Avenida 9 De Julio cuts through the heart of the city and offers access to some of its major landmarks. The street's name commemorates Argentina's Independence Day, July 9, 1816. Modeled after Champs Elysees, the urban highway boasts seven lanes of traffic in each direction and measures 140 m (459 ft) across. Enjoy a stroll down the avenue, or test your nerves by trying to cross the monster street in Buenos Aires' typically hectic traffic.

  • Is considered the widest Avenue in the world, but when you see doesn't impress much even though it is true that you have to cross it in two times

  • Large and noisy central boulevard, probably reassembling Champs-Elysees, but lacking any vibes. May just pass by with a cab.  more »
  • Avenida 9 de Julio is very beautiful, especially in the central area which is the most crowded, say between Fé and Avenida de Mayo, or more. It is impossible to cross it once, very wide, there are lots of trees, lots of light. I was lucky enough to host me in two different hotels, both on the Cerrito Street and one right in front of the obelisk, is an otherworldly experience, is a street that never sleeps and the Obelisk illuminated the night, is stunning, beautiful.
