Although it lacks the cultural flair of Rio de Janeiro and the massive urban sprawl of Sao Paulo, Brasilia holds a fascinating place in the tapestry of Brazil.
Start off your visit on the 18th (Sun): identify plant and animal life at Atlantic Forest South-East Reserves, take in the spiritual surroundings of Santuario Dom Bosco, then see the interesting displays at Espaco Lucio Costa, and finally take a leisurely stroll along Pontao do Lago Sul. Here are some ideas for day two: get the lay of the land with Walking tours, then walk around Parque da Cidade (Sarah Kubitschek), then get a sense of history and politics at Itamaraty Palace, and finally contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Catedral Metropolitana.
