Curitiba is always a pleasant surprise: a green, well-organized and innovative city.

It is the biggest city in South Brazil, with 1,8 million inhabitants and a pulsing metropolitan area.

The city is known by its many manicured parks, great restaurants, cultural life, congresses and events. 

Curitiba is also a melting pot – its population has roots all over the world, with great presence of descendents from Polen, Ukraine, Germany and Italy. Everything is reflected in the way the city is and local inhabitants think and act.

This tour is focused in a walking tour in the old town and downtown area and most famous highlights, such as Botanical Garden and Oscar Niemeyer Museum.

In this tour you will have a good view about Curitiba and will know why the city is considered “Brazil´s model capital city” and collects international prizes for its urban and social solutions.
