The lifeblood of the city flows through Paulista Avenue, which connects old São Paulo to the modern city. The avenue wears many hats—it's a shopping street, a business center, an entertainment and refreshment hub, and a place of education. No vacation in São Paulo is complete without spending some time among the diverse denizens of Paulista. Praça da Sé is the center point of the city and the location of some important buildings, such as São Paulo Cathedral, and the Palace of Justice. To escape the hustle and bustle, head to Ibirapuera Park and take a walk by the lake or visit one of the many museums there. São Paulo is a big city, but the extensive subway system allows you to get around easily. If you're staying for more than a few days, it's worth looking into São Paulo car rentals to get around.
São Paulo Carnival is a multi-day samba sensation, highlighted with a huge street parade. It takes place in February or March each year to celebrate the start of Lent. Virada Cultural is a 24-hour party in April or May, with street performances, plays, art exhibitions, and live music. The festival started in 2005 and has quickly become one of the most popular events on the São Paulo calendar, drawing hundreds of thousands of attendees.
