São Paulo is the biggest city in Brazil and lies on the plateau between hills. The city is similar to a North American metropolis, but the daily life and atmosphere is typically Latin American. The 'Paulistanos', named after the inhabitants themselves, are very friendly towards guests. You can hear interesting conversations and samba music at many bars and restaurants. Our language school lies in the upmarket quarter of the city, not far from the university as well as numerous restaurants and cafés. In 15 to 20 minutes you reach the modern 'Avenida'. The tallest building in the city stands here, the 'Edifico Italia'. The shopping street 'Rua Vinte e Cinco de Março' and the market ‘Mercado Municipal’ which attracts all sorts of fresh, exotic products, are not far either. The Parque Ibirapuera Park, also a cultural centre, is an oasis of calm and distraction. Outdoor concerts, summer football matches and events take place here. In the evening, the Paulistanos meet in the 'Vila Magdalena' quarter and dance the samba until the early hours. In February and March the colourful, well-worth seeing carnival takes over the town for a few days.
