Plaza Italia, Buenos Aires

2.6
A small urban park draws visitors to Plaza Italia, featuring a statue of Giuseppe Garibaldi, who fought in Europe and South America during the 19th century and earned the nickname the "Hero of the Two Worlds." At one corner of the park, you'll see a column brought from the Roman Forum--at more than 2,000 years old, it is one of the most significant monuments in the capital.

  • Not something I would seek out on its own but it is a nice stope between the botanical gardens and the park if you are in the area.  more »
  • This beautiful square in barrio Palermo, dedicated to Italy and have chosen well to represent it with the hero of two worlds Giuseppe Garibaldi. All very green and cured, congratulations to Argentina Administration for how it handled. A visit is a must for Italians vacationing in Baires. Recommended.

  • The city of Buenos Aires is famous for beautiful squares. Plaza Italia is a of that help do justice to this situation, because it is very beautiful and yields great photos. Is at the confluence of the Santa Fe and Sarmiento avenues. Dali also leave many buses that take locals and tourists for several corners. Recommend a visit.

  • I wouldn't say it's particularly "pretty" but it has a few stores that are iconic, like Pizzeria Kentucky, Havana Cafe, and it's the gateway to the Botanic Garden, Bosques de Palermo. I wouldn't hang out here but definitely lots of interesting things around.
  • Beariful square full of history and incredible place to take some pics and enjoy the view, this is a must in Bs.
  • Plaza Italia is one of those hubs you'll find in Buenos Aires. Beautiful gardens surrounds it (El Botánico and Los bosques de Palermo ). I'd recommend to go there and walk from there to Los Lagos de Palermo :)
  • Piaza italia is abvery cool plaza, there is a metro station (for the city center), there is near a park and a botanic garden, in the middle there is the munument dedicated to garibaldi, an italian hero. Is nice how the italian comunity can have a nice place too
  • Its a good green area in the middle of the city. Nice place to visit.
