1. Historic Downtown
During the morning, we recommend visiting the historic downtown and its historic buildings, located around the 25 de Mayo Square. It is worth going into the Basilica Nuestra Señora del Rosario. Just a few steps away, you can find the Municipal Palace and the Post Office. Afterwards, visit the Firma y Odilo Estévez Municipal Decorative Art Museum; book around one hour for this visit.
2. National Flag Memorial
Between the Basilica and the Municipal Palace you’ve probably seen the Oath Passage, a wide path connecting 25 de Mayo Square and the National Flag Memorial. Take it to explore the Memorial, take some photos and, finally, go to the top of the tower using the elevator. From there, take additional photos, but this time looking down at the city and the Paraná river from 70 meters high.
3. Riverside (downtown coast, Puerto Norte, La Florida, & Costa Alta)
Around 11 am, it will be time to start following the path of the Paraná river. If you enjoy walking, follow the riverside until you reach Oroño Boulevard, where you’ll find the Museum of Contemporary Art of Rosario (Macro).
Either by car or bike you can go further and stop in several highlights along 11 kilometers until you reach the lookout point of Costa Alta. The journey is made up of three parts: The first one starts in the National Flag Memorial and finishes in Puerto Norte: around 4 kilometers passing by green areas and highlights such as España Park, the Island of Inventions, craft fairs on weekends, the Museum of Contemporary Art of Rosario (Macro) and the Paper Boat. Finally, you can have a break in the public coastal promenade Puerto Norte.
The second part of the journey includes the Gigante de Arroyito (stadium of Rosario Central soccer team), the Municipal Aquarium and the green areas of Alem Park. The final part takes visitors to nautical clubs along the coastal path. After stopping on the traditional bars of Rambla Catalunya or resting in the sand of La Florida beach, the lookout point of Costa Alta is near. Once there, enjoy the sunset observing the architecture of the Rosario-Victoria bridge.
1. Oroño Boulevard
On Day two, you can take a walk along Oroño Boulevard in the morning. From its intersection with the river, and along 20 blocks, the boulevard boasts houses of interesting architecture on its sides and small squares with palm trees, and old benches and street lamps.
2. Independence Park & Museums
Next, you’ll arrive to the Independence Park, a huge green area located at the heart of Rosario. The most popular area is the one surrounding an artificial lake, where you can rent pedal boats during the day and, at night, enjoy the show of the Dancing Waters. A few steps away, you can find the entrance to the Children's Garden, an amazing place for families with kids; and beyond, the Colossus of the Park, the name of the stadium of the soccer club Newell’s Old Boys.
At midday, you can go back to the bar located near the small lake, have a quick lunch while you use WiFi to check the current exhibitions of the museums nearby. A few steps away, you can find the Juan B. Castagnino Fine Arts Museum, the Dr. Julio Marc Provincial Historical Museum and the Museum of the City. We recommend visiting the Castagnino Museum, one of the most important museums of the interior of the country.
3. Pellegrini Avenue (ice creams, “carlito” sandwich, home-made beer)
As the afternoon comes to its end, from the Independence Park take Pellegrini Avenue, a traditional gastronomic circuit that gathers ice cream shops, bars, and restaurants. Indulge yourself with an ice cream —don’t forget that Rosario is the National Capital of the Home-Made Ice Cream.
Especially in the ten blocks between Dorrego St. and Sarmiento St. (called Pellegrini Promenade), we also recommend sitting in a bar and having a Carlito sandwich, the classical sandwich of Rosario, apart from tasting the delicious local home-made beer during Happy Hours.
