For jaw-dropping views of one of the planet's most sprawling cities, the Edifício Itália is practically peerless. Situated in a bustling, if worn-down corner of downtown São Paulo, the 46-story office tower is capped by the Terraço Itália restaurant and bar. Adequate, expensive food and almost-campy white-glove service aside, you'll never see a sunset as memorable. Free access to observation deck Monday-Friday 3-4 p.m.

This building offers a great view of the city! In the afternoons their is one hour (I believe from 3-4 or 4-5pm) where the panoramic roof is open to the public free of charge and you can go up and take photos. A great experience!...More

Heard about the views so went to visit. They weren't wrong, great 360 views. Costs R30 to get in and you get a free drink to go with it.

This is the tallest building in São Paulo. At the top there is a rather old-fashioned and expensive restaurant, and also a piano bar, both with 360 degree views of the city. The best time to visit is at night, when you can see the...More

Part of the historical centre of São Paulo, República
was once a fancy residential area. República Square
holds a craft and food fair every weekend, right by
the subway entrance. Nearby, one of the
neighbourhood’s main attractions is the Italian
Building, where you can see the city from the 42nd
floor. The Copan Building also deserves a close look,
with 1,160 apartments and a huge floor area that
