Sao Paulo

4.4

Land of Drizzle

Don't let the city's nickname--"Land of Drizzle"--dampen your spirits during a trip to Sao Paulo. While the city does experience a lot of rainfall, much of it occurs during the hotter, more humid times of year, providing a refreshing escape from the heat. With almost 21 million residents in its total metropolitan area, Sao Paulo is not only the biggest city in Brazil, but also in the Southern and Western Hemispheres. The modern, skyscraper-filled metropolis might not offer the intial "wow" factor of Rio de Janeiro, but once you begin to uncover the museums, theaters, and exceptional nightlife hidden beneath the surface, you'll have a blast on your Sao Paulo holiday. Sao Paulo is in State of Sao Paulo (SP). When using our Brazil tour itinerary builder website to make an itinerary online, Sao Paulo holidays come together around your tastes, interests, and requirements, with us taking care of the logistics.
