Rio de Janeiro
Bustling with samba music and all-night street parties, no city encapsulates the spirit of Brazil better than Rio de Janeiro.
Popular historic sites such as Parque Lage and Catedral de Sao Pedro de Alcantara are in your itinerary. Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil - CCBB Rio de Janeiro and Jardim Botânico do Rio de Janeiro are good opportunities to explore the local culture. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Rio de Janeiro: Petropolis (Museu Casa de Santos Dumont & Imperial Museum), Niteroi (Museum of Contemporary Art & Santa Cruz da Barra Fortress) and Cachoeira do Mato Dentro Farm (in Vassouras). There's lots more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Praia de Ipanema, tour the pleasant surroundings at Barra da Tijuca Beach, take in the architecture and atmosphere at The Metropolitan Cathedral of Saint Sebastian, and learn about all things military at Museu Historico do Exercito e Forte de Copacabana.

For maps, ratings, and tourist information, read our Rio de Janeiro route planner.

Expect a daytime high around 37°C in January, and nighttime lows around 28°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 24th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
