The avenue bustles all day and a good part of the night. People working, strolling, touring. Stores, businesses, bits of local history interspersed with contemporary life.

Not sure why this is a site other than it is a massive street for a city. We counted over 20 lanes of traffic that is relatively easy to cross over a couple of lights. Nice pictures of e.g. the obelisk can be taken during your required midway stops crossing this street.

Wow! What a cool street! Pretty hard to avoid if you're wondering around BA but if you don't happen to come across it I think it's worth making the detour, crossing by foot can take two red lights. There's a public bus system running through the middle, and the giant BA sign is there-bit of a queue for that one.... More

Indeed the widest avenue in the world. Takes two or three lights to cross the entire span as it has traffic lights in each avenue. 20 lanes of traffic. Many protests happen around the Obélisque making traffic a nightmare.

Outside the novelty of seeing and possible crossing what may be the widest urban street in the world, I don't see what is so special about Avenida 9 De Julio. There are some nice monuments and some interesting buildings that are worthy of visiting on their own merits, but to me they don't make the road any more attractive. If... More

Interesting to see such a wide road in a busy city. We saw it as part of a walking tour. It is crazy how many lanes there are (around 16 as far as I remember!) cool road that takes a good while to cross!

Widest street in the world--22 lanes. 4-5 crossing lane stoplights. Don't be late arriving on the other side--when the light changes the cars take off.

This roadway is the heart of the city. It is a must see. The road serves several purposes (in terms of the local road network) but it is the buildings which line the road which are particularly interesting

We rode on this Avenue several times. It is wide and carries lots of traffic. It is named after their independance day. At the stop lights vendors waled around the stopped cars. Jugglers entertained stopped cars as well.

Neighbourhood 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 and migrates to Corrientes Ave., where theatre 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.
