In the end of XVIII century the refugees from Italy and Japan started moving to Sao Paulo, creating plantations of coffee and cotton in the city’s suburbs.
Sao Paulo is a perfect destination for nightlife enthusiasts. A good place for a family visit is the Instituto Butantan zoological park which main inhabitants are reptiles and insects. All … Open
Modern Sao Paulo is the industrial metropolis of skyscrapers that reminds of the old Chicago. However, despite numerous grey buildings you can always find seclusion in Sao Paulo if you visit the magnificent Ibirapuera Park or enjoy planted green areas Alameda Santos and Morumbi. You will feel the true spirit of history if you visit the City Museum of Art, which presents the history of art in its chronological order, including a Roman marble statue created in the II century BC. Here you will also find a collection of paintings by Modigliani, Bosch, Picasso, Rembrandt, Van Gogh, Vlaminck, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Leger and other famous artists. Tourists may also enjoy visiting Ipiranga Imperial Museum, Museum of Art and the Butanta Institute – the museum of reptiles.
Nightlife lovers will find in Sao Paulo numerous night music halls, discotheques, many theaters and cabarets.
