Rio de Janeiro
Bustling with samba music and all-night street parties, no city encapsulates the spirit of Brazil better than Rio de Janeiro.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Praia de Itauna and Morro Dois Irmaos. Get out of town with these interesting Rio de Janeiro side-trips: Niteroi (Santa Cruz da Barra Fortress & Camboinhas Beach) and Igreja de Nossa Senhora de Nazareth (in Saquarema). There's still lots to do: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Sugarloaf Mountain, enjoy the sand and surf at Praia de Ipanema, admire the natural beauty at Jardim Botânico do Rio de Janeiro, and admire all the interesting features of Maracanã.

For photos, ratings, reviews, and other tourist information, go to the Rio de Janeiro driving holiday app .

If you are flying in from Portugal, the closest major airport is Rio Galeão – Tom Jobim International Airport. In April, daytime highs in Rio de Janeiro are 33°C, while nighttime lows are 26°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 21st (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
