Day 2 – Municipal Market and Paulista Avenue
How about starting the day by visiting the Municipal Market of São Paulo (or Mercadão, as we call it)? It is a large public market within an old, majestic building founded in 1933, where you can find exotic fruits, meat, cereals, spices, vegetables and fresh local delicacies to try. Some standout examples include the Pastel de Bacalhau and the famous Pão com Mortadela. Trust me, you won’t forget it! From there, experience a relaxing night by Avenida Paulista, the most famous avenue in São Paulo. Walk along the 2.8 km avenue visiting street shops, shopping centres, restaurants, parks, bookstores, theatres, cultural centres and impressive buildings. If you are into museums, you can visit the art museum MASP (Museu de Arte de São Paulo Assis Chateaubriand).

Let’s start with a relaxing morning by the park. Parque do Ibirapuera (Ibirapuera park) is huge, it is a great place to rent a bike and have a nice picnic by the lake. There are three different museums to navigate as well as the unique Japanese Pavilion. You can then enjoy the night by going to Vila Madalena, you will find amazing bars, restaurants, clubs but also the Batman's Alley (Beco do Batman), it is an open air gallery dedicated to graffiti and street art!
