Bustling with samba music and all-night street parties, no city encapsulates the spirit of Brazil better than Rio de Janeiro.
Change things up with these side-trips from Rio de Janeiro: Petropolis (Imperial Museum, Museu Casa de Santos Dumont, & more). There's lots more to do: kick back and relax at Copacabana Beach, stroll through Barra da Tijuca Beach, admire the natural beauty at Theatro Municipal do Rio de Janeiro, and explore the world behind art at Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil - CCBB Rio de Janeiro.

For photos, maps, reviews, and tourist information, read our Rio de Janeiro trip itinerary website .

If you are flying in from Argentina, the closest major airport is Rio Galeão – Tom Jobim International Airport. In January, plan for daily highs up to 37°C, and evening lows to 28°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 4th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
