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

The tour gets over at around 3:30pm. Traffic in SP is unpredictable. So you would probably need to miss a part of the tour if you need to get back on time. Having said that, the local taxis would be the fastest mode of... More
