  • Part of our family program on Sunday afternoon to see the Verdão da Mogiana play. In days of games, it's a good ride to meet this stadium, which is the largest in the interior of MInas Gerais

  • excellent Stadium, could receive more national games. Lack modernize the accents, but it is very well located next to the main Park of the city.

Where to stay in Uberlandia

It's no coincidence that many of Uberlandia's most upmarket hotels line the city's main shopping street, Avenue João Naves de Ávila. Stay in one of the hotels along the avenue, or in the streets of the city center just behind it, to have easy access to the city's excellent shopping options. If high-end acommodation and glitzy retail isn't what you're looking for, look a few minutes away from the avenue and stay in one of many budget guesthouses and hostels. You can also find a cluster of accommodations slightly to the northwest in the neighborhood of Higino Guerra, around Praça da Bíblia.
