Italian Building Tours

Italian Building
Standing 168 meters tall, São Paulo’s Italian Building (Edifício Itália) is the second-tallest structure in the city after Mirante do Vale. Built between 1956 and 1965, it’s famous for its 360-degree-views which you can see for yourself on a trip up to the Terraço Itália restaurant and piano bar, or even further to the 41st floor rooftop viewing terrace. With the city spread out 500 feet below, and soft jazz playing in the Noble Room piano bar, this is most definitely the spot for celebrating a special occasion.

The rest of the floors are given over to offices, and there's a theater and gallery on the ground floor. Another interesting spot in the building is the Circolo Italiano — a nonprofit that preserves the traditions of Sao Paulo’s Italians. The surrounding downtown area isn’t all that safe at night, so if you’re having dinner here it's a good idea to ask the staff to call you a cab to take you back to your accommodation.

Practical Info

On Av. Ipiranga, 344, dinner at the Terraço Itália costs from $75 USD upwards. The nearest metro station to the Italian Building is Republica (Red and Yellow line), and the terrace viewing platform can be visited for R$15, with free access to the viewing platform between 3-4pm Monday-Friday. Entry to the piano bar costs R$30, and drinks cost around USD $10 upwards. Dress smartly to enter the piano bar and restaurant.
