Kicking off our tour at Vila Madalena, a bohemian neighborhood in São Paulo, we'll cycle to Largo da Batata, a hip and bustling neighborhood packed with bars and urban art. After spending some time talking about the graffiti artists and murals here, we will make our way towards the famous Avenida Faria Lima, a business center surrounded by modern buildings. São Paulo is a key location for many businesses, and we'll discuss this and point out some interesting facts about the rise of this city on the international stage.
We will continue on to the famous Parque Ibirapuera, the iconic city park. This green space is filled with museums, bike trails, local flora & fauna, and much more. It's the perfect place to spend an afternoon. It's also home to a few world-renowned buildings designed by the famous architect Oscar Niemeyer. We'll see the Bienal, the Auditorium, and the Afro-Brazil museum as we discuss Niemeyer's life and work. The juxtaposition of these modern buildings against the calm green landscape is simply breathtaking.
As we wrap up the tour, we will ride through the Jardins neighborhood, a quiet area with mansions and beautifully landscaped exteriors. We'll also see Beco do Batman; an outdoors urban art gallery. The murals here are created by renowned artists from the city's graffiti scene, and it's one of the most visited places in São Paulo. We hope you'll join us!
