We went to the Sé subway station where they offer free city tours. It’s called Tourismo Metro and tours are Saturday and Sunday 9am and 2pm. They have four or five different routes so it’s worth going multiple time slots if you have the time. It sure beats the BRL$420 city tour that we found since both tours cover the same locations. Only thing you need to pay for is the subway tickets with Tourismo Metro.
One of many parks in Sao Paulo. It has a variety of plantation. Even trees from the amazon were planted here. My favorite was the elephant foot tree, or at least that’s what the tour guide said it’s called because it has trunks like the elephant foot.
Another park on the east side of São Paulo. They advertised august cherry blossom festival but we didn’t see one cherry blossom. Lies! It was a nice park though..saw a turtle, many abandoned dogs, a crane, ducks and squirrels. I guess squirrels are not common in Brazil. People were amazed with them..
