Watch out crossing!

People walk quickly, and the crosswalk lights seem fast. The guidebooks says that Avenida 9 de Julio is 12 lanes, but I counted 16.

A very gracious European style boulevard with interesting buildings all along its length. It concentrates the energy of the city.

There was an old project, dating back to 1912, to open an avenue there, just a normal-width one. It was shelved for many years, until the city councul decided to revive it with some changes. The new idea was to open a "park"avenue, going from North to South of B.A. Easy to say, but hard to materialize. The avenue was... More

Bustling 1 KM street that starts at the French Embassy. During construction of the street many building were condemned and demolished. The French government refused to submit the embassy building for demolition as the working embassy is considered an architectural masterpiece. Many other attractions are on the avenue including Teatro Colon, The Obelisk, and Plaza de la República. The former... More

This is such a busy and bustling avenue but you know you are in Buenos Aires when you are here. The network of busy traffic and people is so extensive, but it is fascinating walking along. Venturing into the many side streets and back again. The Obelisk is the icing on the cake and this is a must visit in... More

This avenue was huge!! So busy with cars and people, but surprisingly easy to cross the street. I would recommend walking around during the day, not sure how sad it would be at night.

At least 10 lanes of busy traffic including a rail-line in the center and with the famous obelisk at one end. Being from New York, I am not so impressed with this avenue. It takes a while to cross with the lights. Do not attempt to cross without the lights.No need to spend any time here unless you enjoy watching... More

One of the iconic avenues, with the famous Obelisk, in Buenos Aires. It is the widest avenue in the world, parts of which comprise at least 10 lanes. Always busy. Be careful as you cross the avenue because cars and buses will not stop when the traffic lights are green! One of the must-see sights of this bustling city. Recommended.

Although quite busy, it's always a pleasant time looking around. Interesting architecture. Be cautious, though, like in any other big avenue in the world.

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.

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.
