Rio de Janeiro

Marvelous City

Bustling with samba music and all-night street parties, no city encapsulates the spirit of Brazil better than Rio de Janeiro.
Your day by day itinerary now includes Escadaria Selaron as well as Theatro Municipal do Rio de Janeiro. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Sao Bento Monastery and Reserva Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Niteroi (Museu de Arte Contemporanea de Niteroi & Parque da Cidade) and Museu Casa de Santos Dumont (in Petropolis). There's still lots to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Jardim Botânico do Rio de Janeiro, see the interesting displays at Museu de Arte do Rio - MAR, enjoy the sand and surf at Barra da Tijuca Beach, and pause for some serene contemplation at The Metropolitan Cathedral of Saint Sebastian.

To find reviews, other places to visit, traveler tips, and more tourist information, use the Rio de Janeiro trip itinerary planning site.
