What you'll do

We leave from Praça da República toward the ground zero of São Paulo. On the way, we present the most traditional buildings (Copan, Circolo Italiano) and the most modern buildings in the city. In addition, we walk along paved access roads over rivers that run along the old paths. After getting to know the Library and the Municipal Theater, we go to the Cathedral Square, where we will visit the Sé Cathedral, the monuments of the founders and the Páteo do Colégio, where the city was founded. Finally, we will know the first skyscrapers and the headquarters of the religious orders (Jesuits, Franciscans and Benedictines). Finally, we finished the tour in the Municipal Market.

Except for a few months in Europe, I live in São Paulo since I was born. In these 38 years, I've lived in the downtown area for almost 20 years and the history of Sao Paulo has become for me the key to understanding recent Brazil. My first training was completed in music, but a few years later I started studying history and geography and became a teacher of preparatory courses for apllications at universities and other tests.

In Lisbon, I discovered tourism and decided to specialize as a Tourism Guide, with emphasis on the History of Brazil.

Conhecer o Centro Histórico de São Paulo com Dimitri foi uma experiência única, ele me levou por uma linha do tempo pelo centro da cidade. Estou muito satisfeita e superou qualquer expectativa para essa caminhada pelo centro. Valeu!

Je recommande vraiment cette visite avec Dimitri qui est d’une extrême gentillesse et qui a fait l’effort de parler en français. Il a une très grande connaissance de tous les points importants de la ville ainsi que les édifices et connaît précisément l’histoire de Sao Paolo, c’était très enrichissant ! Je me suis très bien entendue avec lui et j’ai adoré ma journée, sans lui je n’aurais jamais pas pu faire une telle visite, j’étais en sécurité c’était top !

Dimitri é um professor de história paulistano que conhece a fundo como São Paulo foi construída. Suas observações vão além da arquitetura, mas também esclarece questões culturais sobre o pensamento paulista. Vale a pena o passeio!
