On your next trip to Uruguay’s capital make sure to consider our Montevideo car hire services for your personal transportation needs.
The city is served by the Montevideo Airport which is situated about fifteen kilometers from the city center and connected to the city via bus routes and of course taxis but your best choice by far would be to employ our Montevideo car rental services and have a car ready for you at the airport as soon as you land.
Once you’re in the city there are a lot of things that you can see or do ranging from exploring the Old Town to visiting museums.
The Old Town or Ciudad Vieja has recently become the center for the city’s nightlife being the home to the most nightclubs while also hosting the ‘Mercado del Puerto’ which is basically a covered market featuring restaurants and shops. This area features, as you might have guessed the most beautiful colonial era buildings in the city with examples such as the Cabildo, the Solis Theatre or the Metropolitan Cathedral.
One other important spot in the city is the Plaza de Independencia – Independence Square which is rather centrally situated with many other attractions and sights being located right next to it such as the Palacio Salvo or the Mausoleo de Artigas.
The Palacio Salvo is right next to Independence Square and its one of the continent’s highest building which dominates the city’s skyline and offers great views of the city. The Mausoleo de Artigas on the other hand is a completely different type of attraction, it’s a large monument right in the Plaza de Independencia which pays tribute to Jose Gervasio Artigas, a hero of the Uruguayan Independence.
Other sights that you may want to visit while in Montevideo are the Barrio Reus which is a rather small neighborhood featuring some extremely charming colorful houses or the sexual diversity monument.
There are many more other sights and things to do while in Uruguay’s capital but the only way to enjoy as many of them as possible will be with the help of our Montevideo car hire services.
