What you'll do

A massive cosmopolitan melting pot of culture is your oyster, whether you want to feel Sampa's pulse along Paulista Avenue in the social heart of the city or stop and smell the orchids at a flower market off the tourist track, the day will revolve around you. You could marvel at the neo-Gothic masterpiece Catedral de Sé or see a statue honoring the bustling city's founders, cascading on a square drenched in centuries' history. After greeting little brother of the Empire State Building, break for a bite of a city-famous sandwich at buzzing market Mercadão, before seeing the Renaissance-styled Municipal Theatre. The Beco de Batman alley adorned with graffiti beckons next, then swing around to a fairy light-lit bistro in hip hood Vila Madalena for hip-twirling samba.

Where you’ll go

Become part of the fast-paced Paulistan rhythm, along streets intertwined with gothic architecture and modernity, such as the palm-tree framed Catedral de Sé or skyscraper lane Paulista Avenue. Stroll along the blooming stalls of a flamboyant flower market, or backtrack 400 years to Pátio do Colégio, Sampa's birthplace. Wander along an urban jungle to the New York-like Altino Arantes building, before navigating overflowing food stalls at the Mercadão market, nestled near the lapping Tamanduateí. After lunch, stroll past the Municipal Theatre inspired by the Paris Opera, before becoming one with colorful modern art in Beco de Batman, and exploring the hipster-friendly cobblestone streets of artsy neighborhood Vila Madalena, teeming with soul-enriching samba.
