São Paulo is among the 50 best cities in the world to visit in 2022, according to the choice of the editors of “Travel+Leisure”, renowned North American magazine specializing in tourism. Along the Galapagos Islands, belonging to Ecuador, the city of more than 12 million inhabitants is the only one in the South America to appear in the list.
