The following are some of the tours we offer during our weekly excursions:

Walking tours: A unique opportunity to get to know the city’s spirit, take a guided historical and cultural tour through some of the most emblematic neighbourhoods of Montevideo. Feel the beat of the drums and uncover the African culture in Barrio Sur and Palermo, travel to colonial times in the Ciudad Vieja, rediscover the 19th and 20th century in El Prado and stumble upon hidden architectural treasures in Pocitos and Punta Carretas…

IMG_5530Museums: Walking through Montevideo you will find more than a dozen museums, mostly located in Centro and the Ciudad Vieja. We invite you to visit a variety of permanent and travelling exhibitions on display, allowing you to learn plenty about Montevideo’s history as well as the history of Uruguay in general.

Here in Montevideo there is plenty to uncover, from the city’s origin as a colony in Cabildo to the home of our first President Fructuoso Rivera. If you’re interested in art, dive into the history of the decorative arts at Taranco Palace or absorb the mysticism of the Blanes Museum…

Mercado del Puerto MontevideoWineries: One definitely should not leave Uruguay without having tried Uruguayan wine. The school organizes excursions to wineries in rural Montevideo where you’ll have the opportunity to taste the pride of our country: the Tannat.

Bars and cafes with history: Many of the bars and cafes in Montevideo have been the hub of Uruguayan popular culture since the city’s naissance. We suggest visiting the cafe Tasende, El Café Brasilero, as well as the bars El Hacha, Fun Fun and Los Yuyos. These bars and cafés were once the second homes of the leaders of the literary, political and mu
sic scenes.

bike tour in Montevideo on ramblaOn Wheels: the Rambla de Montevideo is over 20 km long and while it can be toured in full on foot, a leisurely bike ride is a very tempting alternative. What better than to ride along the Montevidean coast, enjoying the beaches and beautiful views, using eco-friendly transport!

Grab your bike and let’s cycle along the Rambla or through the parks and numerous green spaces that the city has to offer.
