Bustling with samba music and all-night street parties, no city encapsulates the spirit of Brazil better than Rio de Janeiro.
Head to Centro Cultural Municipal Parque das Ruinas and Shopping Leblonfor plenty of shopping. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Copacabana Beach and Praia de Grumari. Take a break from Rio de Janeiro with a short trip to Imperial Museum in Petropolis, about 1h 25 min away. And it doesn't end there: kick back and relax at Praia de Ipanema, appreciate the history behind Corcovado Christ the Redeemer, learn about all things military at Museu Historico do Exercito e Forte de Copacabana, and get advice or help at Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil - CCBB Rio de Janeiro.
