A sprawling avenue which is clearly visible from the air is some 12 lanes wide, and incorporates two car park entrances, and two bus lanes. Plenty of shops, cafes, the Teatro Colon and the giant Obelisco overlooks the lot.

This probably the widest and busiest avenue in the city. Has excellent shopping, restaurant and metro/ bus stations and other tourist attractions

Simply amazing..such a wide street it is hard to cross all at once. Just looking across or down the avenue is a sight. Walking along the street and watching the people and cars move quickly along is better. If you get a chance to drive it, as we did, it can be intimidating but thrilling all at the same time....

A really lovely broad avenue flanked by jacaranda trees, great restaurants, hotels and bars. Reminds one of the great cities of old Europe. Beware of the pavements, they are not well maintained.

Very large and very long, Avenida 9 de Julio is impressive. People going on, cars, buses, and an energy that flows to each corner from the monumental Obelisco! It's just feeling.

The name Avenue 9 De Julio is in reference to the date in which Argentina became independent (9th of July 1816). This is, or maybe isn't (depending on which resource you read) the widest avenue in the world containing around 7 lanes in each direction. You'll probably pass it if you are walking around the microcentro district of Buenos aires... More

Enlighten me if this is not the widest avenue of the world....I counted some 20 lines of traffic. A must see but not much to do here.

the Avenida 9 de Julio, you will visit for sure, you have to be careful at night, there are a lot of picpockets close to the Obelisc, I recommend to visit the avenue from av Santa Fe down to Avenue del Libertador, is beautiful, lots, very nice streets around, and great restaurants in la Recova.

Saying Avenida 9de Julio is grand is a bit feeble...it's off the scale of grandness! I can't think of anywhere else in the world which has such a magnificent avenue at its heart.

Many say it is the biggest road in Latin America. Maybe so, but either way, it is huge. the Oblisco is located in the center of the road as well ad many other popular landmarks on the sides, Eva portrait and Colon Theater.
