DESTINATION & TOURISM

Key Facts, International Travel, and Things to Do

    Background

    Welcome to the largest city in the Americas! São Paulo offers to all its visitors a mix of traditions and innovation. While Brazil has been always famous for its street markets where you can try its local products, São Paulo is also home to several of the tallest skyscraper buildings in the country.

    We would recommend you to take time to visit the Ibirapuera Park, one of the largest parks in Latin America where you will be able to admire the work from the one of the founders of the modern architecture: Oscar Niemeyer.

    In order to live the full experience of being in São Paulo, a stop at a typical Brazilian bar cannot be missed. But you need to be careful, or you will find yourself haunted by the sound of Samba!
