How to get?
The fastest way is by taking Line D and getting off at the Congreso de Tucumán Station. There they will wait for you more than 10 blocks to walk since for the moment they have cut several blocks to avoid traffic jams in the area and the public can walk calmly towards their corresponding sector of the Monumental. It is advisable to bring water and comfortable clothing.
Other ways are through the following bus lines: 42, 107, 28, 15, 29 and 30, which take between 30 and 50 minutes to reach Barrio Nuñez. Trains are another option if you go with time to spare, you can take the Miter train that goes from Retiro to Tigre and get off at Nuñez Station. As a last alternative, you have the Belgrano Norte Station Train that goes from Retiro to Villa Rosa and you can get off at the Ciudad Universitaria Station.
