Rio de Janeiro

— 7 nights

Marvelous City

Bustling with samba music and all-night street parties, no city encapsulates the spirit of Brazil better than Rio de Janeiro.
Shop till you drop at Shopping Leblon and Museu de Porcelana de Petropolis. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Copacabana Beach and Praia de Ipanema. Explore Rio de Janeiro's surroundings by going to Petropolis (Relogio das Flores, Museu Casa de Santos Dumont, &more), Cabo Frio (Museu de Arte Religiosa e Tradicional & Praia do Forte) and Praia de Itacoatiara (in Niteroi). There's lots more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Pedra do Arpoador, enjoy the sand and surf at Mirante da Prainha, view the masterpieces at Centro Cultural Municipal Parque das Ruinas, and get into the urban bustle at Centro Cultural Carioca.
