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.

  • Avenue located in the central region of Buenos Aires and that connects the Plaza de Mayo, the Casa Rosada, until the Plaza del Congreso in which is situated the Legislative House of Argentina. Not to be too long, it's worth the walk by your extension.
