Busy and chaotic main street, Avenida 9 de Julio is the beating heart of Buenos Aires. It's a nice place to stay, if you want to be close to everything.

This avenue is so massive that it feels like it could lead to very world capital. It's beautiful and surrounded by world class architecture, so it can remind you of Les Champs Elises in Paris, but it's busy and modern with neon signs and energy. Think Times Square, NY on steroids, is bigger, more open and with the same amount... More

A long and wide avenue with some monuments in the middle, buses flowing in both senses, several restaurants aside.

This was our regular route to our hotel and we enjoyed crossing and walking this massive avenue.The challenge is to cross it in one stop light. To be safe it takes us 3 stops before we can cross it. I never thought crossing a street could be so fun. Don't miss the travelling fountain somewhere near the Opera Theater.

lights, cars, shops, bars, the rush hour, the center of the down town, easy going, but always take care of the pick pocketers, just in case. The main av. for go all across the capital and other areas of the great Buenos aires.

It is the largest street I have ever seen. I could not cross it all in one light. I should have attempted to run across but the lights change frequently enough that it does not cause much of a delay.

Great place to wander down the center walkway and view all what is going on. Its where you catch buses to all over the place. And taxis too that are very reasonably priced, in fact cheap! Another good point about this avenue is it's a great way to keep your bearings to know where you are. Lots of popular streets... More

What a marvelous avenue, I just love this street and all the restaurants and shops it has. There is much history on this street, it is named after Argentina's Independence Day, July 9, 1816. It is the widest street I have ever seen.

Staying in San Nicolas

Neighborhood Profile
San Nicolas
Immersed in the sound of honking horns and the footsteps of busy office workers, the Microcentro area of San Nicolás is where visitors will encounter the true hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires, walking down streets lined with office buildings and banks. The financial district is well-known for its vibrant atmosphere and unstoppable rhythm during office hours. After dark, the hubbub migrates to Corrientes Ave., where theater lovers might start their evening at a play and end it in one of the many traditional pizzerias nearby. During the day, Corrientes is known for its many bookshops and classic cafés, which are located just minutes away from some famous landmarks, like the Obelisco, Avenida 9 de Julio, and the Teatro Colon.
