Very good experience using the subway here in Sao Paulo (especially lane 4). The network is great, the trains are fast. Everything is clean and you feel safe.
Caution: I used it on Sunday and it was not crowded, it might be different at rush...More
Fast, reliable and safe. Needs to be like that in a city of 20 million people. Fantastic system with the closed doors in a glass panel between the platform and the rails, till the train stops. An additional safety measure, particularly during rush hours when...More
The subway is the fastest way to navigate São Paulo, but be aware that at rush hours - 6am-9am and after 4pm until 7pm, they are very crowded. It is easy to make connections between the lines. You can get a map with the cashier....More

Named after the Ipiranga River, this region is home to Independence Park, where it’s said Brazilian Independence was proclaimed. Its gardens and the tree-lined main street offer visitors a gracious view. The neighborhood also hosts assorted museums and has a strong local feel. Ipiranga is a calm area, with a variety of good dining places and its own Municipal Market, which features flowers, meat, vegetables,
fruits and some special events. Outside the main subway stations you can experience the busy streets, but you just need to walk a few blocks to get back the residential serenity of the area.
