Land of Drizzle

Don't let the city's nickname--"Land of Drizzle"--dampen your spirits during a trip to Sao Paulo.
Sao Paulo is known for museums, shopping, and parks. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: walk around Parque Ibirapuera, pick up some local products at Mercado Municipal de São Paulo, see the interesting displays at Museu de Arte Brasileira - FAAP, and take a stroll around The Julio Prestes Cultural Center - Sala Sao Paulo.

For reviews, traveler tips, more things to do, and other tourist information, you can read our Sao Paulo tour itinerary builder website.

Marvelous City

Bustling with samba music and all-night street parties, no city encapsulates the spirit of Brazil better than Rio de Janeiro.
When in Rio de Janeiro, make a side trip to see Museu de Arte Contemporanea de Niteroi in Niteroi, approximately Niteroi away. There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at Copacabana Beach, take some stellar pictures from Leblon Beach, hike along Pedra da Gavea, and step into the grandiose world of Ilha Fiscal.

To find where to stay, ratings, maps, and other tourist information, refer to the Rio de Janeiro journey planner.
