  • Although Plaza Italy inside the Zoo, La Rural and the Botanical Garden, is not in itself a place that worth a visit. Come many lines of buses and the subway (metro) and the surroundings feature with attractions interesting. But don't go especially to visit this attraction than if it is not interesting.

  • It is a simple place where you will find the Rural (which always has some exposure) and at the time also was the Zoo. It is a few steps from the Botanical Garden. From there come all the buses to different parts of Buenos Aires such as pillar, Escobar, Zarate, among others.

  • Friends is a square more than Buenos Aires, but very well located, have the Rural front, with exhibitions throughout the year, the Zoo, the Embassy of USA, the charming garden botanical.

  • A rather grubby plaza with a large statute. However, it represents a useful transport hub with many buses, the Subte, Metrobus and bicisenda all connecting at Plaza Italia. Around the Plaza are the entrances to the Botanical Gardens, La Rural exhibition centre and the new EcoParque (formerly the city zoo)
  • One of the most important key points in the city, it is located on a very important avenue (Av. del Libertador). Near many important and diverse places, from Art Museums to well-maintained woods. "Plaza del Libertador" is very well maintained and contains beautiful art. A must-visit for tourist.
  • Eat some pizza, visit the "Jardín botanico". Go to the zoo, or just walk 4 blocks to the "Rosedal".
  • a beautiful place, surronded by places such as Botanical Garden, the zoo, theaters and la Rural, a place in which a lot of events take place.
  • Nice square, nice food, good transport hub. Not much else.
