Garden City

Named for its spectacular mountain views, and known locally as the "Garden City," Belo Horizonte has historically fostered a connection with nature since its inauguration in 1897.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Santuario de Nossa Senhora da Piedade and Igreja Batista da Lagoinha. You'll explore and learn at MM Gerdau - Museu das Minas e do Metal and Memorial da Imprensa. Take a break from Belo Horizonte with a short trip to Alambique & Parque Ecologico Vale Verde in Betim, about 1 hour away. There's still lots to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Igreja Sao Jose, admire the masterpieces at Arts and Crafts Museum, take in the exciting artwork at Palacio das Artes, and take an in-depth tour of Memorial Minas Gerais Vale.

Find out how to plan Belo Horizonte trip without stress by asking Inspirock to help create an itinerary.

Land of Drizzle

Don't let the city's nickname--"Land of Drizzle"--dampen your spirits during a trip to Sao Paulo.
Step off the beaten path and head to Tombo Beach and Asturias Beach. Let the collections at Sabina and Casa das Rosas - Espaco Haroldo de Campos de Poesia e Literatura capture your imagination. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Sao Paulo: Guaruja (Praia de Pernambuco & Pernambuco e do Mar Casado Beach), Fo Guang Shan Brazil - Zu Lai Temple (in Cotia) and Feira de Arte e Artesanato (in Embu das Artes). There's still lots to do: explore the world behind art at Museu da Imagem e do Som - MIS, get a new perspective on nature at Jardim Botanico de Sao Paulo, take a stroll around The Julio Prestes Cultural Center - Sala Sao Paulo, and get engrossed in the history at Museu do Ipiranga.

Marvelous City

Bustling with samba music and all-night street parties, no city encapsulates the spirit of Brazil better than Rio de Janeiro.
Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Copacabana Beach and Praia de Ipanema. For shopping fun, head to Plaza Shopping Niteroi or Centro Cultural Municipal Parque das Ruinas. Venture out of the city with trips to Niteroi (Costao de Itacoatiara, Praia de Itacoatiara, &more). The adventure continues: brush up on your military savvy at Museu Historico do Exercito e Forte de Copacabana, trek along Pedra da Gavea, enjoy the sand and surf at Leblon Beach, and fly like a bird with a parasailing or paragliding tour.
