What you'll do

Explore sprawling urban jungle São Paulo like a true Paulistano, with the help of your city host visiting ten must-see sights, like the massive spiritual center of the city, the Metropolitan Cathedral, around the corner from the neoclassical Palácio da Justiça. See the local evolution of architectural designs outside the Solar da Marquesa, and a nearby church and school, titleholder of the oldest in town. For lunch, rub shoulders with locals at boisterous food market Mercadão, before heading to the Renaissance-style City Theater, near the grand cultural center. Next, meander along the city's most famous avenue and economic powerhouse Avenida Paulista, before escaping to green haven Parque Trianon, where you'll forget you're in one of the largest cities in the world.

Where you’ll go

Navigate populous Sampa - Latin America's industrial heart - like a pro along bucket list landmarks in the city center, past the magnificent palm-tree lined Sé Cathedral towards the classical pretty-as-a-picture Court of Justice. Meander along a marshmallow pink, balcony-lined passage dotted with 18th-century architectural styles, before popping to the blue-windowed birthplace of São Paulo, Pátio do Colégio. Mercadão market awaits for lunch, brimming with exotic fruits and flavors, before darting to the heavily ornamented facade of the romantic theater. Next, head to the bustling stage for economics and historical protests alike along Avenida Paulista, strewn with landmarks in the shadows of skyscrapers, before kicking your shoes off urban forest Parque Trianon.
