Calle Florida, Buenos Aires

(3,000+ reviews on the web)
Gift & Specialty Shop Shopping
Known for its chaotic mix of high-end retailers and street hawkers, Calle Florida makes for an interesting Buenos Aires shopping spree. The pedestrianized street, just north of the central Plaza de Mayo, has gained a worldwide reputation for its slightly dubious "unofficial money exchangers," who call out "cambio" in Spanish as you pass. Keep walking north of Avenue Cordoba and you'll suddenly find a host of leather shops, offering distinctive locally made products. Take a moment to appreciate many talented street performers on your walk. Put Calle Florida into our Buenos Aires trip itinerary builder and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • The most important businesses in the city, which were quickly developed to convert to this street, for the diversity and quality of products offered, in the epicenter of fashion and elegance of the country were installing in Florida at the beginning of the last century.
