Visit the charming little city of Blumenau. As you walk these streets, you will be taken to Europe as this German colonized city, carved in the south of Brazil, is very true to the culture of the country where its founding fathers were born.
Everything down to every detail is German, except for the language, which is still Portuguese, but many people do speak German. The gastronomy is Bavarian, the architecture is Tudor, the majority of the locals are blonde with blue eyes, and even the traditional lederhosen is used in local festivities.
While you are in Blumenau you'll be able to let all that culture sink in while you observe the gorgeous German buildings in town. You'll be allowed some time to buy local handmade goods.
Pick up from most hotels in Florianopolis.
