Avenida 9 De Julio is known as the widest avenue in the world. The avenue has seven lanes in each direction plus two lanes for turning to the side streets. To cross the street it takes three changes of red lights. Lots of sights along the way. For example, there is a large obelisk in the center of the street... More

You will have to drive there when visiting the city. Our hotel, the Sofitel once and the Novotel the second time, were located nearby. That led us walk along the avenue and in its neighborhood. It is spacious, crowded, lively, and you can see pretty building. If you go below the bridge at the end of the avenue, close to... More

takes to changes lights to cross width unless you run across. Eva Peron at one end speaking into microphone from Colon area and a profile from the other side. The only item missing from a Parisian atmosphere is wide walkways. There are grass areas between the cars. Traffic can be a tournament - don't expect drivers to slow down for... More

Quite a unique thoroughfare through the middle of the city. An incredibly wide tree lined avenue surrounded by beautiful buildings. We walked up and down each side of the road studying all the architecture and history lining this great avenue. There a very few sights like this in main cities.

This city-block wide avenue may have been designed for the car, but is nothing short of breathtaking for the pedestrian as well. Many landmarks dot the avenue, including the Obelisk. This tree planted boulevard may not have the charm of Champs Elysees, but it's still a unique Buenos Aires visit.

This is a wide interesting road with some impressive buildings and structures. You can cross the road easily because there are several crossings controlled by lights. There is a large obelisk, a building with an interesting picture of Eva Peron and a statue of Iguazi Falls in aid of it being voted a wonder of the world.

The scale of this street doesn't hit you until you are standing in the middle of it. Its name honors Independence Day, July 9, 1816. The avenue runs for about one kilometer. It has up to seven lanes in each direction and is flanked on either side by parallel streets of two lanes each. There are two wide medians between... More

If you go to Buenos Aries you will no doubt see this street. It is 10 lanes wide and has 4 crossing stations. Get in a crowd and link arms and brave the crossing at least once but when you are told to walk - walk fast. Take time to experience some walking up the middle there are great spots... More

We just about walked the entire length of this amazing Avenue! About 16 lanes wide with separate lanes for buses. The rest are for cars and plenty of them! It reminded me of the Champs Elysees in Paris!
