  • The tower is a beautiful work of architecture and certainly notable in Montevideo but is not an attraction for tourists who wants to visit Montevideo. If it is possible to upload you can see the Bay of Montevideo but I don't know if it is feasible to tourists.

Where to stay in Montevideo

Montevideo's central neighborhoods offer plenty of hostels for budget-minded travelers, as well as a good selection of mid-range hotels for visitors looking for a bit more space and privacy. Luxury rooms are harder to come by, especially if you arrive without a reservation. If you want to indulge your every desire, your best bet is the waterfront area, where you can find four- and five-star hotels offering all the modern amenities you need, including complimentary bicycles and car rental services.
