What Is It? Many would argue that Sao Paulo rivals Rio when it comes to nightlife, art, restaurants, live music and even football teams.
Why Do It? Sao Paulo has a wealth of exciting attractions to explore, including museums, like MASP, an amazing art museum that holds the finest collection of Western art in Latin America, and on Sundays, the area around it hosts two great outdoor markets, including a huge antique market and a handicrafts market which includes fantastic street food. The city is one of the best in the world when it comes to creative street art, with its street filled with many wonderful examples, especially in the city center and in the area of Vila Madalena.
Good to Know: The historic municipal theater, Theatro Municipal de Sao Paulo, which opened in 1911, is one of the city’s great architectural treasures and cultural attractions, a gem inside and out with Art Nouveau, Renaissance and Baroque styles, stained glass, mosaics and marble. It also offers outstanding performers from Brazil and across the globe.
