  • Vehicle Museum in an excellent state of conservation, distributed in 2 buildings. Off-street parking included in the ticket. Featured for McLaren to Emerson Fittipaldi. Points for improvement: toilets cleaner and nicer, have coffee shop on site and offer guided tour.

  • Ride fast, in about 20 minutes if you see everything. There are models of vintage cars extremely interesting. Has own parking. I liked.

  • A very interesting place to visit if you are a lover of cars. At Christmastime is all spruced up. Stay inside the Barigui Park.

Where to stay in Curitiba

Wherever you choose to stay in the city, you'll be able to get from place to place on your Curitiba itinerary in a breeze, thanks to the rapid bus transit system. Most higher-end hotels sit in or very close to the city center, especially along the pedestrianized main street of Rua XV de Novembro. Stay here if you want quick access to the best shopping strip in town. You can look slightly out of the center, in the neighborhoods of Batel and Seminário, to mingle with the city's posh crowd. Curitiba's continuing growth in popularity with younger tourists means you can now find any number of budget youth hostels, mainly concentrated in the center and inner suburbs.
