Facts about São Paulo:
São Paulo is the most populous city not just in Brazil, but also in the Western and Southern Hemispheres, and is the capital of the state of São Paulo. It is a cosmopolitan, melting pot city, home to the largest Arab, Italian, Japanese, and Portuguese diasporas.
What to do during your spare time: São Paulo has many museums, movie theatres, theatres, libraries and cultural centres besides several restaurants and bars. You can find more information on: https://cidadedesaopaulo.com/?lang=en.
Please keep in mind that even in summer the weather in São Paulo can be quite unpredictable. Every single season of the year can be experienced in just one day! The tip is to always have on your bag a tank top, a coat and an umbrella.
