A 9 block walk from our home begins Calle Florida, a pedestrian street that is lined with shops and galleries. It also has street vendors in sections and you will find an occasional musician(s) and tango dancers. It also houses both Galeria Guemes and Galeria Pacifico, separately reviewed.

Main walking and shopping street in the downtown part of the city. It is nice to be able to stroll through town without having to worry about cars passing. Very popular for shopping!

One of the main pedestrian only streets, full of stores and important shopping malls, included the highly recommended "Galeria Pacifico" on Florida and Cordoba. Florida is a good route to go from the plush "Recolleta neighborhood" to Plaza de Mayo where"Casa Rosada", the presidential offices, is located as well as and many other historical cites of BsAs.

Recreational, you may find a couple dancing Tango on the street, you can buy a leather cloth while you are waking all the Florida street. Enjoy it!

One of several pedestrian walkways in downtown Buenos Aires. There are plenty of shops and cafes to pop in and check out. Also plenty of people willing to exchange dollars or euros into pesos, although you might be safer exchanging money at a bank or your hotel

Calle Florida is Buenos Aires' most famous pedestrian walkway and thoroughfare. You'll find the Galerias Pacifico Mall, restaurants, and other retail outlets. I enjoyed walking back and forth on the Calle Florida. You get a chance to see real life Portenos engaged in living their lives.

When I travelled to BA, this street was in the process of being relaid. Unfortunately the temporary measures that were in place meant that the street was virtually impassable.

Very busy shopping street. Pedestrian only but a very high volume of people. The crowds were fairly easy to navigate and the shops seemed endless. A very diverse variety of shops. Ranged from small local shops to high-end designer stores. Overall great experience.

A decent shopping area, especially if you want to pick up some leather goods. Otherwise, it's simply good to get from point A to B without having to deal with traffic.

A busy, pedestrian-only street in downtown Buenos Aires that is full of street vendors, shops, and restaurants. It was extremely crowded with people aggressively trying to sell things. There are much nicer areas to shop in the city.

Calle Florida is a shopping street that was near my hotel and the main thoroughfare for most places I had to go. I enjoyed the walks each morning and evening.

To many people, noises and traffic. The prices are not so good, neither the products… Spend time in other places is the best thing to do.

Calle Florida in Buenos Aires is like Las Ramblas in Barcelona: they are both pedestrian walkways that can be very touristy and are line with shops, eateries, interesting street performers, and a quintessential touristic experience.

Lunch time in the middle of the chaos of the city. Get lost in this convent's patio, and forget about it all.
