A good way to see the main attractions in such a short time is to take the touristic bus (the double decker). But if you want to do it on your own I would recommend you to go to the rambla (the coast of Montevideo). My favourite part of it is "Plaza Virgilio" in Punta Gorda beach, late afternoon would be the best moment.
At midday I recommend you to have lunch at "Mercado del Puerto", the best barbacues are there, but are a litttle expensive (but delicious). Mercado del Puerto is at the historical city called "Old City", so....walking around before or after lunch you would be able to know sth about our history, main buildings and else. And if you wanna continue walking you will reach the city centre...

You shouldn't miss Rambla de Montevideo.La Rambla has to be the life blood of Montevideo - an artery that links the entire coastline of this wonderful city. It stretches for miles and whilst in principle is only a walking path, it actually has something for everyone. If I were you, I will Intentionally pick a hotel right on the Rambla...hahaha. It is alive day and night and the heart of the city. ;) The best time is of course the sunset - unforgettable views.
Eat a meal at the Mercado del Puerto, dating from 1868, and browse the arts and handicrafts shops. There are strolling musicians and artists. :)
And oh, in your travel, don't forget comfortable, low-heeled shoes, like our favorite espadrilles. These days,they are really handy , not only for the countryside, but also for sightseeing along cobblestone streets and long beach walks. And if you are in quest for come comfortable shoes, I usually buy flats from http://lasambucalifestyle.com/en/30-espadrilles , I hope this helps :) almost 8 years agoAnswered by Sara Tagami via Travellr.com
