What you'll do
São Paulo is hosting some of the biggest communities of immigrants of the world.
We will talk about Italians, Afro-Brazilians, Japanese, Syrian-Lebanese and many others.
We will discover the history of the first skyscraper of Latin America and learn how the natives were living here before and where was passing one of the oldest path of South America.
We will cover the "new' center and discover the historical downtown. Jesuits and Conquerors, Churches and Banks, migrants and immigrants!
During this walk I'll show you how the city of São Paulo transformed itself in the last 100 years and what means living here today.
Be ready to jump to the top of the city to shell the eyes in front of its immensity to then dive into its vibrant communities getting lost in its colors, perfumes and hidden details.
This is what happens to me every day since I live in this beautiful mess!
Where you'll be
This tour begins in the center of an extraordinary triad of buildings: Copan, Italy and Hilton!
We will meet in the heart of the new center, once the most important financial district of the city and today a place of Bohemian, street artists and fantastic restaurants.
Then we will go down and cross the city through the “new” and the “old” center.
We will move from the new center to the old one by visiting the Municipal Theater, the Martinelli Palace and the Cathedral da Sé as well as the Convent of San Francisco.
Last but not least, we will arrive in Japan Town!
