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 TopShopping. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Copacabana Beach and Pedra do Arpoador. Explore Rio de Janeiro's surroundings by going to Petropolis (Relogio das Flores, Museu de Porcelana de Petropolis, &more), Cabo Frio (Museu de Arte Religiosa e Tradicional & Praia do Forte) and Praia de Itacoatiara (in Niteroi). Next up on the itinerary: tour the pleasant surroundings at Praia de Ipanema, head outdoors with Leblon Beach, kick back and relax at Mirante da Prainha, and take in nature's colorful creations at Jardim Botânico do Rio de Janeiro.
