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!

This ranks tops alongside the greatest streets of the world -- the Champs Elysees, the Royal Mile, and Venice's Grand Canal; though it does not have the lights of Broadway or the Vegas Strip, it is every bit as impressive as the widest avenue in the world, helped by the fact that it has the city's Obelisk at its center...

Avenida 9 De Julio is the widest avenue in the world. Its name honours Argentina's Independence Day, July 9, 1816. The avenue has seven lanes in each direction plus two lanes for turning to the side streets (flanked on either side). Total 18 lanes. The boulevard is so wide, it's hard to go across in one traffic light. So in... More

Supposedly biggest boulevard in the world. Impressive in scope but it is just a big street. Lots of sights along the way. It will be on any city tour you take so it is hard to miss.

I love to walk along this amazing street. As the avenue is so broad and there is so much to see I feel free and easy when I am there. Take your time to walk along by daytime and in the night.

it is a wild street, amazing how many lanes there are. Not the cleanest sidewalks, it is worth walking up and down it is certainly worth the time.

This is the widest street I have ever seen. Crossing it is definitely a challenge. While I was there I witnessed an accident where a cyclist was hit by a driver. Fortunately, he didn't seem to be injured, but the front wheel of his bycicle was a mess, the driver did stop. On this street you'll find the obelisk, Teatro... More

The Avenida 9 de Julio is one of the widest streets I have ever seen.Worth a visit if only just to see it. It is quite central in Buenos Aires and traverses many of the major tourist attractions in the city. Recommended!
