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.

There's a good view - no denieing - but I don't like the fact that it was unclear when it is possible to get in, and do we need to pay or not. Our friend was there on sunday morning and did not get it....More

I visited in October 2016 and was told that they do not offer a free view anymore - you need to visit and order something at the restaurant first.

Mind-blowing views from the top of this building near Praca de Republica. There is a 30 reais cover charge (plus whatever you order) but well worth it. The city of Sao Paolo goes on forever in every direction. Amazing. I didn't eat here, cannot comment...More

This viewing platform is easy to get to and costs nothing to get a decent panorama. However, on a hazy day the view is rather truncated.

The receptionist told us in his best English that the rooftop terrace is only open after 3pm. We were too early to wait for that unfortunately... This was on a Saturday, perhaps other days have other opening hours...

When in Sao Paulo, have it on the list. One of the places to see how big this city is. A true megacity.

Part of the historical center 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 neighborhood’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 inspired
