Bustling with samba music and all-night street parties, no city encapsulates the spirit of Brazil better than Rio de Janeiro.
Escape the urban bustle at Praia de Ipanema and Pedra do Arpoador. Get a sense of the local culture at Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil - CCBB Rio de Janeiro and Sugarloaf Mountain. There's lots more to do: kick back and relax at Copacabana Beach, learn about all things military at Museu Historico do Exercito e Forte de Copacabana, look for gifts at Shopping Leblon, and take in the exciting artwork at Centro Cultural Municipal Parque das Ruinas.
