Rio de Janeiro

Famed for its magnificent geographic setting, sun-drenched Copacabana and Ipanema beaches and glitzy lifestyle, Rio de Janeiro is undoubtedly Brazil’s most spectacular city. It’s a city high on life, from sensual samba to football fever and the dazzling Rio Carnival. From dawn until dusk, Rio is alive with exciting things to do and see, whether for families, honeymooners or adventurous travelers.

Visit the iconic statue of Christ the Redeemer, take a cable car up Sugar Loaf Mountain for breathtaking views of the city, dine in superb restaurants and wander around the artistic neighborhood of Santa Teresa. Rio is a fantastic city to explore by bike, on foot or even by helicopter for something a little more exclusive, and each way is sure to give you a taste of its distinct neighborhoods and vibrant cultures.
