Best starting point is the Plaza Independencia (Montevideo main square). From here you can see the remains of the city walls and town gate, which is the beginning of the original Old Town. This is a nice area to walk around in. From “old to new” parts of the city. Some places to go shopping, a few places to eat as well. Clean area with a lot of people out and about. Locals and tourists all mesh in this area. I found it to be worth the stroll down the street to check it out. Good spot for some pics!
There are two explanations for the name MONTEVIDEO: First comes from the Portuguese “Monte vide eu” which means “I see a mountain” and the second could be the location of the city in a map as “Monte VI De Este a Oeste” meaning “The sixth mountain from east to west”.
