We drive along the Avenue of Sete de Setembro, with the Campo Grande square all along to the Castro Alves square. Then we go to the Lower City, drive through the Comércio neighbourhood, where the port lies, and go back up to the Upper City to park the car in the Santo Antônio neighbourhood. We visit the most important squares and streets of the Historical Center of Salvador on a walking tour of a couple of hours.

After lunch we first drive through the busy area of the port of Salvador and then through some low class neighbourhoods, like Uruguay that once formed the biggest slump of Brazil. This takes us to the Itapagipe peninsula where we visit the neighbourhoods of Ribeira, Bonfim and Boa Viagem. The markets São Joaquim or Modelo that can be visited, are on the itinerary. Alternative itineraries, depending on your interests, can include the Dique do Tororó to have a look on the beautiful statues of the Orixás, African gods and goddesses, and the splendid sport stadium Arena Fonte Nova or the neighbourhood of Liberdade, one of the biggest “black” neighbourhoods of Salvador, situated in the Upper City with fantastic panoramic views on the Lower City and the Bay. Finally, we drive you back to your hotel or drop you off at an intermediate place if you prefer.
