Avenida de Mayo, Buenos Aires

4.3
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.

  • Nice for the ancient archtiteture, European style. Sculptures, spaces, photos, very cool and clean. It's worth it.

  • This avenue joins up 2 of the main plazas in the city and is filled with stunning buildings and would be a highlight for anyone who studies architecture.  more »
