Bustling with samba music and all-night street parties, no city encapsulates the spirit of Brazil better than Rio de Janeiro.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Catedral de Sao Pedro de Alcantara and MAC Niteroi - Museum of Contemporary Art. Get some historical perspective at Ilha Fiscal and Sao Bento Monastery. Venture out of the city with trips to Petropolis (Museu Casa de Santos Dumont & Imperial Museum) and Santa Cruz da Barra Fortress (in Niteroi). There's lots more to do: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Sugarloaf Mountain, stroll through Copacabana Beach, hike along Claudio Coutinho Trail, and explore and take pictures at Maracanã.
