What To Expect
We will pick you up from your hotel to take this guided city tour of Montevideo, in which you will learn about the fascinating history of this multicultural city, a mix between Spanish colonisation and Portuguese cultural influence.
Marvel at the famous Puerta de la Ciudadela, the entrance to the charming old Montevideo. It used to be the door of the city, to defend it from Portuguese invasions in the colonial period, and it is also our start point to visit the old Montevideo. We will see the Matriz Square, the centre of the Colonial City, where you can admire a calm that makes you forget you are in the middle of the city. From there you can see the historical Cabildo, centre of the colonial government, and the Cathedral, as in each Spanish-colonial square. Don't miss the beautiful handicrfts market and enjoy the cheerful atmosphere, with the artists, the music and the artisans. You will also see a colonial fountain of potable water.
After that, we will take you to El Prado neighbourhood, one of the most beautiful of the city, residence place of the 19th century aristocracy, which conserves the typical charm of its luxurious past. Marvel at its roses and Botanical Gardens, the statues and the picturesque bridge: a very nice and quiet walk!
After passing by the legendary Centenario Stadium, the most important stadium of Uruguay, we will finish our tour next to Rio de la Plata's river, the typical Rambla of Montevideo, where you will see the neighbourhoods of Pocitos, Buceo, Malvin, Punta Gorda and Carrasco. Enjoy some free time to explore the city at your own pace, before going back to your hotel.
