In March 2015 we are going on a very special trip to Brazil. In cooperation with the local architect and artist Judith Augustinovic, we are pleased to offer an exquisite program with a focus on Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro as well as the coastal landscape between the two cities! The inspiring metropolis of Sao Paulo captivates with its beguiling density with outstanding new architecture and innovative concepts. A special tour leads to Lina Bo Bardi's classic buildings, walks in the center and in the Jardim Paulista district show skilful interventions in existing structures, the world's best interiors of shops, restaurants and bars speak for urbanity and the avant-garde. 

A leisurely bus ride leads along the coast from Sao Paulo to Rio de Janeiro. Stopovers - in Ubatuba, Angra dos Reis, Paraty, etc. - to visit exceptional villas and 2 nights at selected locations allow you to enjoy the breathtaking Atlantic coast in detail.

With its fantastic location, Rio de Janeiro unites a pulsating city and a tropical natural landscape in a unique way. Our tour moves between the latest architectural highlights, the historic city center as well as perfect vantage points and legendary beaches.
