Avenida de Mayo, Buenos Aires

#22 of 231 in Sightseeing in Buenos Aires
Landmark Tourist Spot
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.

Where to stay in Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires offers an impressive selection of budget-friendly and mid-range lodgings, as well as pricier, more luxurious options for visitors who don't mind splashing out. Good rooms are scattered across town, but your best bet for economical hostels remains San Telmo, a neighborhood on the edge of downtown. For boutique establishments and international five-star hotels, head to Palermo, Recoleta, or Puerto Madero, upscale neighborhoods drawing the majority of foreign visitors.
