Bustling with samba music and all-night street parties, no city encapsulates the spirit of Brazil better than Rio de Janeiro.
You'll explore and learn at Forte de Copacabana and Instituto Moreira Salles. Discover out-of-the-way places like Jerusalem Cultural Center and Helicopter Tours. Change things up with these side-trips from Rio de Janeiro: Niteroi (Santa Cruz da Barra Fortress, Camboinhas Beach, & more) and Saquarema (Igreja de Nossa Senhora de Nazareth & Praia de Itauna). Next up on the itinerary: tour the pleasant surroundings at Praia de Ipanema, enjoy the sand and surf at Pedra do Arpoador, indulge in some culinary diversions at a local gastronomic tour, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Sao Francisco da Penitencia Church.
