Presentation of the destination

- Marlène Dietrich

"Rio is a beauty. But São Paulo - São Paulo is a city, "said Marlene Dietrich. A daunting, vibrant and colorful city, unlike any other city in Latin America. Sampa, as it is known here, is the largest city in Brazil and the cultural and financial center of the country. Added to this is a rich musical scene, luxury brands, numerous museums and renowned gastronomy. If all are not seduced at first, it is because you have to learn to know it, to discover it step by step and to be intoxicated by its busy streets.
