The energy of a modern city with the charm of historical neighbourhoods

Montevideo, the vibrant capital of Uruguay, is a bustling metropolis offering a diverse array of cultural, historical, and recreational experiences.

Discover the soul of Montevideo in Ciudad Vieja's historic heart. Wander its cobbled streets, soak in well-preserved colonial architecture, and lose yourself in art galleries, boutiques, and cozy cafes—perfect for unhurried strolls.

Montevideo unfolds its beauty along the Rio de la Plata's stunning coastline. The Rambla, a charming waterfront promenade, invites leisurely walks and bike rides. Bask in the sun on Playa Pocitos or Playa Ramirez, where the city's beaches cater to both sunbathers and water sports enthusiasts.

The central square pulsates with life, surrounded by landmarks like the Solís Theatre, the iconic Palacio Salvo, and the Ciudadela Gate. Pay homage at the Artigas Mausoleum, dedicated to Uruguay's national hero, José Artigas.

Montevideo echoes with its musical heritage. Immerse yourself in live music, tango, and candombe performances across the city's diverse venues. In February, the Montevideo Carnival steals the spotlight, boasting one of the world's largest celebrations. Dive into extravagant parades, vivid costumes, and an infectious festive vibe.

Shopaholics rejoice in Montevideo's offerings, from upscale boutiques in Punta Carretas Shopping Mall to the artisanal crafts and souvenirs at Feria de Villa Biarritz.

Expand your horizons with day trips to Santa Teresa National Park's historic fort or serenely escape to the UNESCO-listed Isla de Flores by boat.

Montevideo is a city of history, culture, cuisine, and seaside tranquility that warmly welcomes every kind of traveller.
