Avenida Paulista serves as a conduit for São Paulo's money and energy, art and culture. The 8-lane thoroughfare represents the drive and verve of the city, and many interesting cultural and artistic hubs have sprouted along its route and in nearby neighborhoods. Start off at the striking Centro da Cultura Judaica (Jewish Cultural Center) before hopping on the subway to Avenida Paulista itself. Stroll along the busy avenue and take in the exhilarating atmosphere of South America's largest metropolis, then take an art break at the Museu de Arte de São Paulo, followed by a rest stop at lush Parque Trianon. Continue on to the Centro Cultural São Paulo with its many rotating exhibitions, then have a meal and maybe a night of karaoke in São Paulo's Japantown, Liberdade. Show more

Ouro Preto. This UNESCO World Heritage site had developed to become the most important town of Minas Gerais during the gold rush age, connected to the distant commercial port of Paraty by the Estrada Real. Revolutionary ideas that took shape here didn't go too far and basically ended with the execution of the leader, Tiradentes, on the gallows in the homonym main square. The historical city center hasn't changed much since and features fine examples of Baroque style buildings and churches. Free-admission Casa dos Contos, where gold tax was collected, is an interesting building and museum. It's also worth seeing the Mina da Passagem, the most generous gold mine in the entire area, which still holds gold although too costly to be extracted. From Ouro Preto's main square, Praça Tiradentes, take the bus to Mariana and stop just west of the nearby town of Mariana, a small but well preserved historical town.Show more
