Silversea Luxury Cruises A Santos

Santos boasts the largest dock area in Latin America and is considered the world's foremost coffee port. A city of mostly modern buildings, wide tree-lined avenues and wealthy suburbs, Santos retains a charm that has not been extinguished by the development of an enormous port complex. Although best known for its commerce, it also offers resort facilities for city-weary Paulistas, including beautiful beaches, plenty of shops and a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. For cruise vessels Santos serves as the starting point for a trip to São Paulo. View more

Founded by two Jesuit priests in 1554, São Paulo started out as a shabby little town of clay and mud-packed buildings. At the end of the 19th century, enterprising "coffee barons" began to place large amounts of their profits into local industry, helping to catapult the city into a major financial center. Immigrants arrived from all corners of the world. Today, São Paulo is the most populous city in South America and the continent's leading industrial center. Much of this incredible development can be attributed to the fact that the Paulistas are among the hardest working and most energetic people in Brazil. Another important factor is the availability of ample hydroelectric power, which greatly contributed to the city's industrial growth. Work and profit aside, the city has its attractions. But being so spread out puts a limit to what one can accomplish in a single day. Guests participating in the city tour must be aware that at best it will provide them with an overview of this immense metropolis.
