An inmersive experience into both the cultural and natural wealths of city!
We'll start by visiting the square made in honor of the founder of Montevideo, and then go to the oldest one in the city (Constitution Square). We will then enter into the headquarters of a public institution that curiously predates our country itself, and even drive around our magnificent Legislative Palace. After that, we will embark into the green.
You will learn exactly why Montevideo is called a "Green City" visiting its 3 primordial green areas (Prado, Rodo Park and Franklin D. Roosevelt Park) each with a cultural heritage landmark of its own. Take vantage of the vast biodiversity Uruguay presents; with over 450 confirmed bird species in our territory, get ready to do some birdwatching across this tour! Before arriving to the last park, we'll visit one last national heritage building: the Carrasco Casino, located in the most high end neighbourhood of the city.
Plus, if you take this tour on a weekend, at no extra cost you will have the chance to go into a paddle boat and sail around the waterfall lake.
