Top ways to experience Paulista Avenue
The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Bela Vista
Known for its Italian cantinas, Bela Vista is the place to go for great pasta. Also called “Bixiga”, the area is an important cultural part of the city, with the bohemian and the religious costumes of its inhabitants on full display. In August, the large Nossa Senhora Achiropita party fills the streets with a variety of Italian food and music. You can experience the liveliness of the neighbourhood walking through the antiquities fair at Dom Orione Square or visiting the “Brazilian Caminito”, a version of the Argentinian street complete with colorful buildings. Bela Vista is also home to the traditional samba school “Vai-Vai”. Buy a ticket to a rehearsal and get a taste of what Carnival is like.

It's a wide street with shops either side. Why so special? Business district of the city. Shopping Centres have more food outlets than actual shops in them.

One of the most elegant avenues in the city with lots of large buildings everywhere. Many shops, hotels, food venues and much more and on a Sunday the road is closed to vehicular traffic during the day between 8am and 4pm. Just don't get caught out in a horrific Sunday afternoon of rain, thunder and lightning as occurred mid February 2024.

Impressive improvements over the past 35+ years. Many of São Paulo’s nicest shops are located here. It is a street of office towers, shops offering all kinds of goods, shopping malls, restaurants, cafes, treed parks, street vendors, a few homeless people, street performers, and more.

This is a great street to experience the scale of Sao Paulo. The buildings are so big! A lot of them have a great deal of character too.

Really loved how the road is closed on Sundays so that pedestrians can walk straight along it.

Go on a Sunday to enjoy a relaxing walk on Paulista as the road is closed for traffic. You can stop by Japan House and MASP during your walk and enjoy live music along the way.

Visit on Sunday... from 8am to 4pm the entire road is closed to traffic and it becomes an urban park full of skaters, cyclists, walkers, and bands playing live on every street corner! Great for music fans, but also loads of activities for kids as well.

We kept a low profile to not advertise that we were foreigners and did not have any problems. The street was full of music and vendors - fun! If you go, keep cell phones and money out of sight!

Avenida Paulista is a major thoroughfare in São Paulo and is one of the most important Avenues. There are some significant landmarks along the central section including São Paulo Museum of Art, Trianon Park as well being a popular shopping district. It is also known for its profusion of TV and radio masts and notably TV Gazeta. We enjoyed our time in and around Avenida Paulista and we particularly liked the the fact that it was closed to traffic on Sundays with musical acts and art displays taking place. It is a great avenue and one of the highlights of São Paulo.
