Guided Tour of Sao Paulo
After meeting in the city centre, we'll head downtown and discover the exact place where the city was founded. Shortly after, we'll pass by the Sé Cathedral, considered the 4th largest Gothic Cathedral in the world. We'll also see the Neo-Romanesque Sao Bento Monastery, the 18th-century St. Francis church and the Martinelli building; the city's first skyscraper!
The city's architecture is world-renowned, and you'll be able to discover why, seeing examples such as the Sao Paulo Municipal Theatre, the Italian Tower and the Altino Arantes building, which has a striking resemblance to the Empire State Building in New York. Plus we'll see Tea Bridge and we'll reach the historical Avenida Paulista, one of the financial hubs of the city.
We'll also take you through the Liberdade neighbourhood, which is home to the greatest number of Japanese people outside of Japan! And if exploring is making you hungry, we've got the covered in the Municipal Market. This eclectic building is the oldest market in the city, and with its many incredible food stalls, you're sure to find something to satisfy your appetite.
You'll also visit the green heart of Sao Paulo: Ibirapuera Park, and our last stop will be the Vila Madalena neighbourhood, popular due to its bohemian atmosphere. As we wander through the streets you'll see various art studios, but really the streets are museums in themselves, covered with colourful graffiti and street art.
If you've only got a few hours to explore Sao Paulo, you could choose the Express Tour, which will enable you to discover the city in just three hours. The tour will be the same as the five-hour option, but you won't visit the Municipal Market or the Vila Madalena neighbourhood.
