I walked a good bit of this street. It has many stores, including El Ateneo Gran Splendid Theatre. Definitely a nice walk but I also recommend walking Calle Callao. I found Callao to be a lot more relaxing and fun to walk. Also not as...More

Just like home. Almost. My hotel was on this street and i couldn't believe the similarities. I know BA is a diverse city and this just added to the prestige for me. Great street, great city. Enjoy!!

Here you can find many places to stop for coffee, visit some of the shopping arcades, some from the old times of splendor.. Always very busy, and alive. One of the traditional areas of Buenos Aires

OK place to take a stroll. Shoppers mix with locals going to and from their apartments. Most of the stores are somewhat routine, but a few more interesting picks are among them. 5 Avenue Galleria for instance is a retro clothing 'mall' with a few...More

For shopping, supposedly one of the best streets in Buenos Aires. Florida Street is more expensive and more fashionable, so Santa Fe is nothing out of the ordibary, every large city I have ever visited has several equivalents. Not worth the time - there are...More
