São Paulo : Michelin's recommendations
Nowadays, it is hard to imagine the little village founded by the Jesuits that once stood here… Synonymous with unchecked urbanism, gigantic buildings, noise, pollution and high crime, São Paulo is not everybody's cup of tea. It is a shame, as behind the appearances, this eclectic city harbours a fascinating ethnic diversity, a lively cultural scene, underground bars and unique nightclubs… not to mention excellent food. Don't be overwhelmed!
