For those short on time, the 3-hour option is the perfect way to explore all the highlights of São Paulo. After pickup at your hotel, venture downtown for a brief walking tour exploring the history of the city and visit Catedral da Sé.

Journey on past the Monastery of São Bento, Martinelli building—the city’s first skyscraper—and past the Municipal Theatre. Explore the architecture of Oscar Niemeyer at the Copan--Brazil’s largest residential building--as well as City Hall, and the Banespa Tower.

Check out other landmarks such as Ibirapuera Park, the famous Paulista Avenue, and the home to the second largest Japanese population outside of Japan—Liberdade.
