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!

Nice street, feels safer at night than others (I lived in Buenos Aires for five months and walked home down this street at 2am dozens of times and never had a problem). It is just a street, maybe not worth it to see on it's own.

Stunning to just walk up and down seeing the gorgeous buildings. Go in the evening as the sun sets the lights come on and you can see the whole avenue light up. Definitely worth a vist

People are exaggerating when they say "dare to cross avenida 9 de Julio". There are traffic lights that people do follow and there is an island in the middle which makes crossing easier. There is definitely a lot of traffic on the street at any time of day. We used the street as our base to help figure out where... More

Said to be the widest boulevard in the world (and I believe that) it is mesmerizing to watch from above and a bit daunting to cross as most drivers and all cabdrivers think they're in the Indy 500.
