Sao Paulo Extension

Itinerary

Fly from Campo Grande / Tour Sao Paulo / Transfer to Airport
On the final day of your Brazil adventure, take a late-morning flight from Campo Grande to Sao Paulo, arriving around noon. Meet your guide and commence a half-day overview of the metropolis alternatively known as Sampa—one of the world’s most cosmopolitan cities, and the largest in Latin America. Home to 12 million people, Sao Paulo is both an economic and cultural powerhouse in Brazil, filled with notable architecture and a population that represents a melting pot from all over the world. Sao Paulo is noted for its vibrant arts and culinary scene, and the city is replete with theaters, cinemas, concert halls, museums, 15,000 restaurants and 20,000 pubs that support nonstop nightlife.

On arrival, head immediately for a quick lunch in the bohemian Vila Madalena district, a longtime center of Sao Paulo art and culture filled with galleries, studios, graffiti-covered alleys, hip restaurants and bars. Then spend the next four hours discovering the city's highlights. In Sao Paulo’s historic downtown, many of the city’s architectural cornerstones are on display. Stop to visit the Metropolitan Se Cathedral, a neo-Gothic structure with a Renaissance-styled dome that was built in 1913 on the site of a demolished colonial cathedral. It holds up to 8,000 people, making it South America’s largest church. Your survey of the city continues as we pass landmarks such as the ornate 1903 Teatro Municipal, Republic Square, the elegant 1892 Viaduto do Cha overpass, the heart of the financial district along Paulista Avenue, and Sao Paulo's city hall designed by a famous Italian architect, with a sleek marble facade. Along the way, take note of impressive buildings designed by noted architects Ramos de Azevedo and Oscar Niemeyer. We also pass Patio do Colegio, where the city of Sao Paulo was founded.

Inside Ibirapuera Park, designed in 1954 to commemorate the Sao Paulo's 400th anniversary, find refreshment in an open green space that's often compared to New York City’s Central Park. Note the strikingly modern, triangular Ibirapuera Auditorium and the otherworldly dome of the Oca exhibition space. Your overview of Sao Paulo concludes late this afternoon with a transfer to the international airport for departing flights.
