For jaw-dropping views of one of the planet's most sprawling cities, the Edifício Itália is practically peerless. Situated in a bustling, if worn-down corner of downtown São Paulo, the 46-story office tower is capped by the Terraço Itália restaurant and bar. Adequate, expensive food and almost-campy white-glove service aside, you'll never see a sunset as memorable. Free access to observation deck Monday-Friday 3-4 p.m.

This is the tallest building in São Paulo. At the top there is a rather old-fashioned and expensive restaurant, and also a piano bar, both with 360 degree views of the city. The best time to visit is at night, when you can see the...More

This place has a amazing view from the city. There are a restaurant (you need to make a reservation) and a piano bar. It's not cheap but it's a woth see in São Paulo.

You can see the whole city from up there but the prices of the food are unreasonable. Ive been to a wedding reception several years ago and at night the view is even better!

This building is one of the symbols of São Paulo downtown, together with Copan and Banespa buildings. On top of it, there is Terraço Itália, where, apart from a fantastic view over the city of SP, you can have a nice drink or a pleasant...More

Part of the historical centre of São Paulo, República
was once a fancy residential area. República Square
holds a craft and food fair every weekend, right by
the subway entrance. Nearby, one of the
neighbourhood’s main attractions is the Italian
Building, where you can see the city from the 42nd
floor. The Copan Building also deserves a close look,
with 1,160 apartments and a huge floor area that
