Bustling with samba music and all-night street parties, no city encapsulates the spirit of Brazil better than Rio de Janeiro.
Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Pedra do Arpoador and Praia de Ipanema. Get a sense of the local culture at Copacabana Beach and Jardim Botânico do Rio de Janeiro. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Rio de Janeiro: Petropolis (Imperial Museum, Cervejaria Bohemia, & more), REGUA - Reserva Ecologica de Guapiacu (in Cachoeiras de Macacu) and Parque Estadual da Serra da Tiririca (in Niteroi). There's lots more to do: take in the awesome beauty at Pao de Acucar, kick back and relax at Praia de Grumari, catch a live performance at Theatro Municipal do Rio de Janeiro, and explore the world behind art at Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil - CCBB Rio de Janeiro.

To see photos, more things to do, reviews, and other tourist information, go to the Rio de Janeiro online sightseeing planner .

In July, daytime highs in Rio de Janeiro are 30°C, while nighttime lows are 22°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 24th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
