Landmark
As you stroll along the tree-lined Avenida de Mayo you might want to remind yourself that you're still in Buenos Aires, not Paris or Madrid. The famous avenue boasts a distinctly European atmosphere, often compared to La Gran Via or Le Champs-Elysees thanks to its high-end shopping and cafe culture. Check out the stores nestled in the avenue's Art Nouveau and Neoclassic buildings to browse through some top fashion or memorable souvenirs. Pop in for a drink at charming Cafe Tortoni, whose wood-lined walls have welcomed customers since 1858. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Avenida de Mayo by using our Buenos Aires trip builder.

  • On this Avenue, the trade is a little decadent, with many shops closed/closing ... but has numerous interesting Cafes, each with your story. Walking through it, you go to various points: Obelisk, Cathedral, Casa Rosada, Florida ... A beautiful walk and a good ride.

  • It is very interesting to walk along this Avenue and stop for a coffee at the Tortoni, (must know the underground) to then continue looking architecture, with buildings will be grades surprises. They can not fail to know the passage Barolo. (if you get a better guide)

  • quiet without trouble, and if possible a Saturday or Sunday when there are very few people transitandola, don't forget to search the Barolo passage and climb its dome.
