But even though, I guess you’ve never merged into those areas of the city, which are: SBS = Setor Bancario Sul SAS = Setor de Autarquias Sul SCS = Setor Comercial Sul May be you haven’t visit yet these parts of the city because normally parking is difficult and/or you simply feel restraint going there by yourself. With HOM-ing’s Walking Tour you will discover the architectural beauty of the administration buildings, cultural institutions like Caixa Cultural, Museu de Valores, Museu Nacional dos Correios, Casa da Cultura da América Latina (CAL) and, at the same time, witness the daily working life of the Brazilians while walking through the Galeria dos Estados and the various passages where street-vendors offer any kind of merchandise (from fresh fruits to clothes and household utilities).   The tour ends – optionally – with a lunch at the restaurant “Coisas da Terra”.

    Vila Planalto is the oldest quarter of Brasilia. It was built up to host the engineers and workers who constructed the city. Its location between the Esplanada dos Ministerios and the Palacio da Alvorada nowadays is most attractive for the citizens to live near to the center and at the same time in a quiet area. Till today, some old wooden houses can be seen. While walking through Vila Planalto you will experience a typical Brazilian village atmosphere and know restaurants and shops. On Wednesdays and Thursdays you’ll have the opportunity to make your shoppings of fresh products at the weekly market. At the end of the tour, we will have lunch at one of the buffet restaurants.
