4 Days Sao Paulo Experience
Fondly known as ‘the city that never stops’, São Paulo is a mega metropolis and mecca for economics, politics and culture, whose influence extends not only to the rest of Brazil – but to the world.
Within this heaving urban sprawl (being the fourth largest city in the world!) we’ll get under the skin of its cultural identity, uncovering why it is Brazil’s most cosmopolitan destination, home to immigrants from all over the world: Italy, Portugal, Japan, Spain, Libya and the Middle East; to name a mere few. This magnetic multicultural mix is reflected in the beguiling art scene of São Paulo, which we’ll delve into while wandering through distinctive barrios, visiting the Ibirapuera Park, a stroll down Paulista Avenue and getting to know the very heart of the city itself, all the while meeting the people that create its unique and addictive edge.

We will catch a glimpse and be surprised with the city’s size, its vibrant culture, the diversity that makes us think of the whole world in one city. Accommodation.
