Montevideo & Colonia
Just a short ferry ride from Buenos Aires, Uruguay has a unique charm and a fascinating history. Visit historical Colonia and the city of Montevideo.
Uruguay, a country that has been living in the shadows of its neighbours Argentina and Brazil, has slowly started to gain its deserved recognition as a popular tourist destination.
Visitors can experience the rich cultural life and amazing atmosphere of Montevideo, home to nearly half of the population of Uruguay. Uruguay is also famous for its great wine production, the most popular being Tannat red wine. The best way to enjoy the variety of Uruguayan wines is to visit one of the 15 vineyards around Montevideo. And no visit to Uruguay is complete without a visit to the charming and historical town of Colonia del Sacramento, a UNESCO world Heritage site popular due to its pretty cobbled streets, colourful buildings, Portuguese fort, and classic cars. Due to its small size the country allows visitors to discover the country to its fullest and see all the highlights in just a few days.
