Avenida de Mayo, Buenos Aires

(4.3/5 based on 1,800+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Beautiful avenue of style very similar to the Gran Via which has buildings wonderful as, for example, the Palacio Barolo and splendid cafés, notably the Tortoni. They still need to regain some of the old buildings and, above all, has to improve the cleaning of the area.
