Still, with ample green space and the lively Villa Ambiental (Environmental Village) educational play space for kids, there's plenty for everyone in the family to enjoy. Bike rentals, jogging trails and coconut water vendors are but a few of the park's amenities. And it's sure to be less crowded than Ibirapuera any day. « less

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. « less
