What to do in Pinheiros and Vila Madalena
>> A nice walk on the streets around our Meeting Point,
to get an idea of the hipster style of Pinheiros neighborhood, mainly Rua dos Pinheiros, with many options of restaurants. One block away, walking through Fradique Coutinho St. you will find the unique Brazilian Handcraft store called Paiol (one of the best options to get souveniers and authentic Brazilian art back home).
>> have a tipic local breakfast in a local bakery
very tipic from São Paulo is the famous "Pão na Chapa" (means bread with butter on the hot plate) and "Café Pingado" (means a small glass with hot milk and hot coffee). If you want to eat more, try the popular snacks "Pão de Queijo" (made with cheese) and "Coxinha" (fried, with chicken inside).
Another good option to have, not just for breakfast, but any time, is the tropical fruit called "Açaí" - served cold, purple color, comes with granola and banana - very refreshing!
>> Paulista Ave tour (on Fridays and Sundays)
After our Vila Madalena tour finished, our guide will go to Sumaré subway station (green line), in a 20min. walk. This station is just two stops from Consolação subway station, where is the Meeting Point of our Paulista Ave Free Walking Tour, that starts at 3h30pm. You can book here!
>> enjoy Batman's Alley:
the best spot for graffiti in the city - and that's why we finish our tour there: you can keep enjoying the area by your own. Beautiful graffities on the walls, and on weekends there is a open air market going on.
>> visit the art galleries around:
