Once the summer getaway of Brazilian emperors, the "imperial city" of Petropolis serves as a tribute to the lavish lifestyles of Brazil's 19th-century elite.
Get out of town with these interesting Petropolis side-trips: Niteroi (Fortaleza de Santa Cruz da Barra & Praia de Itacoatiara) and Parque Nacional da Serra dos Orgaos (in Teresopolis). There's lots more to do: see the interesting displays at Imperial Museum, admire the masterpieces at Museu de Porcelana de Petropolis, take in the spiritual surroundings of Catedral de Sao Pedro de Alcantara, and indulge your thirst for a good beer at Cervejaria Bohemia.
