Discover things to do in Curitiba, from designer shopping to garden strolls

Located on the border of the upscale Batel and Água Verde neighborhoods, Radisson Hotel Curitiba is surrounded by sleek restaurants, artisan bakeries, and art galleries. If you’re looking for things to do between on-site meetings, cross Sete de Setembro Avenue to stroll alongside tranquil fish ponds in Japan Square, or browse designer boutiques at Pátio Batel, one of several elegant shopping centers in the area. Soccer fans can experience the adrenaline-pumping action at Arena da Baixada, less than two kilometers from the hotel. If you have more time to explore, drive 15 minutes east to wander among the breathtaking flowers at the Botanical Garden of Curitiba. Or head about a half-hour north to the lush Parque das Pedreiras, home to the Wire Opera House, which is as renowned for its architecture as the big-name classical, rock, and jazz artists who perform there.
