This relaxing tour allows you to experience South America's most cosmopolitan capital from the comfort of an air-conditioned coach with little or no walking involved.
A scenic drive from the pier takes you past the Graff Spee monument which commemorates the famous WWII German warship whose sunken remains rest on the floor of the ocean a short distance outside the harbor.
Continuing on into the city, you'll view many of Montevideo's prominent buildings, parks and monuments. Some of the sights you'll see are Independence Square, the oldest city square in Montevideo, and the site of a massive equestrian monument and mausoleum of Uruguayan hero Jose Artigas. You will also view Prado Park, a 175-acre estate built by 19th century financier, José Buschental, who brought in exotic fish from Asia to fill the streams, as well as animals and plants from around the world. Today, the park is noted for its historical monuments and attractive gardens that feature a stunning display of roses. There will also be a photo stop at the Last Charruas Monument.
Before heading back to the ship, stop for pictures at the magnificent Legislative Palace, considered to be one of the three most beautiful legislative buildings in the world because of its ornate marble structure. Your return route travels along the picturesque Rambla or waterfront, where many of the city's gorgeous beaches are found.
