After walking along busy streets I enjoyed casually strolling Rua 24 Horas, listening to the musicians, watching the performers, window shopping, soaking in the beauty of Praca Rui Barbosa.

Jaime Lerner convinced us all, or the hype surrounding Curitiba convinced us all that the Flowers Street was the first pedestrian shopping street in Latin America. Well, perhaps it is, but there seems little out of the ordinary here. Simply no cars allowed, which is good. Real good.

This pedestrian-only boulevard gives a big cosmopolitan touch to the city, Lot of shopping, open air coffee shops and restaurants attracts visitors and locals. On Saturdays find artists selling paintings and handcrafts, few street entertainers as well. Same day the city offers diverse games and fun for children.

Heart of the city, where people from all social classes and origins meet each other. A place to see the real life of the residents. The town would not be the same without this street.

Very nice place to enjoy a nice walk in safe and pretty surroundings. Conveniently surrounded by many stores, so you can buy souvenirs, clothes, supplies--anything you need! Located close to the historic sector of the city, so it is a great way to spend part of a day, whether you travel for business or pleasure.

This is my favorite place to walk, to shop to look around and to listen to gossipers. We find all kind of people on the street. Curitiba is famous for the beautiful girls in the country and you can find many around.
