Where to stay in Sao Paulo: Best areas for travelers

  • Central Zone: You'll be in the heart of the action when you stay here. Mouthwatering cuisine, sights galore, convenience — this area is hard to overlook. If this is your first visit, don't miss Municipal Theatre of São Paulo and Sao Bento Monastery. Some top places to stay include the Hotel Plaza, the São Paulo Inn and the OYO Hotel Sao Jorge.
  • Jardins: With loads of interesting attractions, you won't be twiddling your thumbs around these parts. First, select your hotel from top-notch options, like the ibis budget Sao Paulo Jardins, the George V Casa Branca and the Le Premier Suites. Then, narrow down which landmarks you'd love to visit. Itau Cultural Institute, Igreja Nossa Senhora Do Brasil and Sao Luis Gonzaga Church are popular places to start.
  • Bela Vista: If you'd love to tick off some of the city's top attractions, this neighborhood has so much for you to discover. São Paulo Museum of Art is a great place to kick things off. You can easily visit this sight (and many others) from the Abanabas Hotel, the Hotel Carrao or the Hotel Diamantina.

Major Attractions

The lifeblood of the city flows through Paulista Avenue, which connects old São Paulo to the modern city. The avenue wears many hats—it's a shopping street, a business center, an entertainment and refreshment hub, and a place of education. No vacation in São Paulo is complete without spending some time among the diverse denizens of Paulista. Praça da Sé is the center point of the city and the location of some important buildings, such as São Paulo Cathedral, and the Palace of Justice. To escape the hustle and bustle, head to Ibirapuera Park and take a walk by the lake or visit one of the many museums there. São Paulo is a big city, but the extensive subway system allows you to get around easily. If you're staying for more than a few days, it's worth looking into São Paulo car rentals to get around.

Festivals and Events

São Paulo Carnival is a multi-day samba sensation, highlighted with a huge street parade. It takes place in February or March each year to celebrate the start of Lent. Virada Cultural is a 24-hour party in April or May, with street performances, plays, art exhibitions, and live music. The festival started in 2005 and has quickly become one of the most popular events on the São Paulo calendar, drawing hundreds of thousands of attendees.
