Walking in Diamantina
While in Diamantina, you won´t even need to use the public transportation. The city is quite small, so you can go to all the places walking (except for the waterfalls). The only problem is that the city was built on a mountain, so be ready for the slopes...

Buses to Diamantina
Diamantina is located in Minas Gerais State, 280 Km from Belo Horizonte (Minas Gerais´ capital and biggest city). This is the closest you can get by plane. From BH, you´ll have to catch a bus and the trip will last around 5 hours.
São Paulo is 878 Km away. The bus trip will last 15 hours with 5 stops. I did it (the round trip) twice. It´s not as bad as it seems...
