Bustling with samba music and all-night street parties, no city encapsulates the spirit of Brazil better than Rio de Janeiro.
Visit Copacabana Beach and Praia de Ipanema for some beach relaxation. Head to Centro Cultural Municipal Parque das Ruinas and Botafogo Praia Shoppingfor plenty of shopping. Venture out of the city with trips to Museu de Arte Contemporanea de Niteroi (in Niteroi) and Petropolis (Imperial Museum & Museu Casa de Santos Dumont). There's lots more to do: admire the masterpieces at Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil - CCBB Rio de Janeiro, learn about all things military at Museu Historico do Exercito e Forte de Copacabana, look for gifts at Shopping Leblon, and kick back and relax at Barra da Tijuca Beach.
