RE: Hotel

by loboviejo

Oi,

I've spent many nights at this hotel over the past few years, and have always found the staff to be very helpful. In truth, it is not a luxury hotel, but its location is great....across the street from the Teatro Guaira...and a few blocks from the main post office and the start of the main walking street of XV de Novembro. There is a small fridge in the room. Two blocks away is a supermercado, and in another direction you will find a nice, large park. The hotel is a few feet away from the airport bus stop, and about a 20 minute walk from the rodoviaria. The breakfast is nothing special, but filling....bed are single and narrow....rooms usually large. Many times the hotel offers reduced prices, not announced on the internet. I've paid between R$45 to R$60 a night, and always ask for a discount for being a senior...student....traveler...or whatever works! Curitiba is a great place to visit! The fair near Plaza Garibaldi on Sundays is not-to-be-missed! Enjoy your visit there!

Travel Tips for Curitiba

Santa Felicidade - Holy Happiness :)))

by mircaskirca

Some 8 km northwest of the city is Santa Felicidade, an outer suburb of Curitiba. The residents like to refer to it as an Italian colony inside the city. It's the neighbourhood where some of the first immigrants from northern Italy settled. They dedicated themselves to the agricultural production and especially in wine and cheese making. The name of the area is homage to the Brazilian Dona Felicidade, who donated a part of her land to the hard-working Italian immigrants.

Today the main reason to visit Santa Felicidade is for the restaurants, which line the main road, Avenida Manoel Ribas. It has some of the city's best and biggest restaurants and wineries with production right there. Among others, there is Madalosso, the second biggest restaurant in the world (Guiness Book 1995). These places generally offer the northern Italian dishes that have been adapted according to the availability of ingredients and the results are an interesting blend of local Brazilian and Italian influences.

Alongside Avenida Manoel Ribas you also find shops selling plants, wooden furniture, wicker items, crafts, wine and other local produce.

The residents work hard to maintain their Italian culture and heritage and it shows in the architecture and personality of the area. Santa Felicidade is the location of several annual festivals, including the Grape festival in February and Wine Festival in June and July.

Yellow buses to Santa Felicidade can be caught on Travessa Nestor de Castro (just below Curitiba's historic quarter) and the journey takes about 45 minutes.

The train from CURITIBA to...

by pjallittle

The train from CURITIBA to PARANAGUA begins at a high elevation and gradually descends through a mountain range. All that you can see are trees and wide expanses of forest below and beyond.

One is aware of being in a very remote part of the world when , of a sudden, there is a small village with just a few residences, all serving the railroad in some capacity.

Eventually, you come to realize that you are going downhill, the temperature gradually going from cool to warm, then hot. Paranagua, a major seaport on the East Coast of So. Brazil begins to come into view.

You have to decide, before you leave Curitiba, whether to take a round trip or opt for the bus, as we did, returning by an entirely different route.


You have several hours to wander around in Paranagua, an old and utilitarian city geared to the seaport.

Curitiba

Curitiba is an interesting little city that I used as a jumping point to take a very scenic train down to the ocean. It is a train that hugs the mountains as it descends to sea level -- where at the bottom you can take the boat to Ilha do Mel.
