Overview
More
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.

The views of the Italian building from open space ground level are a lot better than those of the next door built-in Copan building. Pretty forward design from the Brazilian architect Franz Heep. But dazzling views from the 46th floor at 165 m high.

This building offers a great view of the city! In the afternoons their is one hour (I believe from 3-4 or 4-5pm) where the panoramic roof is open to the public free of charge and you can go up and take photos. A great experience!...More

Heard about the views so went to visit. They weren't wrong, great 360 views. Costs R30 to get in and you get a free drink to go with it.

was once a fancy residential area. República Square
holds a craft and food fair every weekend, right by

neighbourhood’s main attractions is the Italian

Hi Ms Aspinav Yes, you can visit the Edificio Itália in the morning, but you have to drink, at least a coffee ... minimal consumption to attend. In my opinion, you have to go there end see São Paulo over 44 floors.
