Ramble through Montevideo's culture and history with this audio walking tour

Take a self-guided GPS audio walk with Alberto Rodriguez, a historian from New York who'll tell the story of Montevideo's Old City. He'll uncover its most colourful decades, from the 1870s through to the roaring 1920s, when there was rapid development here, led by a diverse group of industrialists. Behind today's facades, you'll find bawdy entertainment, exciting sports and a cast of fascinating characters.
