Vila Madalena in the AM and Paulista Avenue in the PM!! Great tours by the super energetic tour guides!! Although I would not recommend doing 2 walking tours back to back - it is a bit too much for one day.

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

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
