Everyone's saying it's just a wide street. okay, it is but at night it has a lot of store and company signs all lit up and gives the city a different fell. At times it reminded me a bit of new york in the old days.

If you are in the area, seeing the widest street in the world is worth observing for a few seconds. It was only a few blocks from our hotel; so, we made the trip to see it.

Our hotel was on this gargantuan street. We had to cross it many times, and we never made it across on one green cycle. I suppose if you are a sprinter, you might make it. Most impressive features: it actually works relatively well, with buses located on the inside lanes and through and local auto traffic on the outside lanes.... More

From an elevated view De Julio may look impressive, but at the end of the day it is still just a road and I wouldn't describe it as an attraction. I've lived here for 2 months now and have crossed the road many times on my days off and on my way to work, and I've never once thought when... More

This street stands out to me because it's such a dramatic street. It's actually four or five two way streets lined up against each other. This thoroughfare includes bus stops and a bus path, passage toward El Obelisko, green space, and a massive commemoration of Eva Peron on the side of a tall building. It's a very futuristically executed urban... More

As a tourist you won't miss Avenida 9 de Julio. It is certainly worth crossing it just to say you have crossed the widest road in the world.

I did not know that the avenue was one of the biggest in the world! I just remember trying to cross the street and thinking "My.. this avenue is huge!" The avenue reminded me a bit of New York City. However, the huge obelisk sets it apart from NYC. There is lots to do in the area so put on... More

The avenue is one of the widest in the world and is named after the date of independence of Argentina. It was newly renovated when I went, and there are now bus stops in the middle of the Avenue. You will definitely pass it when walking in the city!

As long as you are in BA you gotta go see it. This is truly an example of chaos on the roads. It's only about 5-10 min from the casa rosada. Just look ford the obelisk and go that way. You will have to pick one side or the other ( because you won't be going back an forth across... More
