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 Jerusalem Cultural Center and Igreja de Nossa Senhora de Nazareth are in your itinerary. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Forte de Copacabana and Praia do Leme. Get out of town with these interesting Rio de Janeiro side-trips: Praia de Itauna (in Saquarema) and Niteroi (Camboinhas Beach, Santa Cruz da Barra Fortress, & more). The adventure continues: examine the collection at Instituto Moreira Salles, kick back and relax at Copacabana Beach, take in panoramic vistas at Morro Dois Irmaos, and stroll through Reserva Beach.
