Copacabana Beach

Copacabana Beach is probably the most famous and beautiful beach in the world! The colour, vibrant atmosphere and the fun-loving nature of the people that flock the beach is beyond compare. The beach itself runs for 2.2 miles and is dotted with many hotels, resorts, restaurants, pubs and a variety of other entertainment venues.

Christ the Redeemer

The iconic Christ the Redeemer, a statue built as a symbol of Brazilian Christianity is one of the most recognizable landmarks in the world today. The gigantic statue with its arms stretched forth has even been listed as one of the Seven Wonders of the New World. An absolute must-visit spot during your next visit to Rio.

Sugarloaf Mountain

Sugarloaf Mountain, a peak located at the mouth of Guanabara Bay is known worldwide for its cableway and panoramic views of the city. A glass-walled cable car runs along a 1400-meter route between the peaks of Pão de Açúcar and Morro da Urca every 20 minutes offering mesmerizing views of the surrounding environs.

Ipanema Beach

Enjoy much cleaner sands and sea at the immensely popular Ipanema Beach. Located in a slightly trendier area of the city, the long stretch of sun-drenched sand, offers visitors absolute entertainment and relaxation. Sports-lovers would enjoy the games of volleyball, soccer and frescobol (a type of beach tennis played with wooden rackets and a rubber ball).

Corcovado Moutain

Towering over the city of Rio, Corcovado Mountain is situated within the Tijuca Forest National Park. The mountain is not only popular for its natural beauty and prime positioning, but also because it is at the base of the Christ the Redeemer statue. The train trip to the mountain itself is beautiful and scenic.

The Tijuca Forest

A tour of the Tijuca Forest, considered to be the largest urban forest in the world is probably one of the top 5 most popular things to do in Rio de Janeiro. Birds, small mammals such as Saguis and Capuchin monkeys are the main stars, while other mammals such as raccoons are also seen here.

Leblon

Considered by many to be the most affluent neighborhood in Rio de Janeiro, Leblon is dotted with many chic stores and dining and wining venues. The beach in Leblon is quieter and more relaxed than the always happening and trendy beaches of Ipanema and Copacabana. Ideal for those who prefer to be ‘far from the maddening crowd’.

Historical Museum of the Army and Copacabana Fort

At one time, Fort Copacabana was considered to be the most modern Fortification in South America. Today the Fort and the surrounding area features many historical artifacts, buildings and monuments bearing ample testimony to the city’s rich and colourful history. The cannon, front porch, Republic Hall and the Colony-Empire Hall are some of the main attractions here.

Maracanã

The Maracanã is probably the most iconic venue for the world’s popular sport, football. Built to host the 1950 World Cup, the stadium has hosted some of the most memorable battles in the sport. The stadium which was reported to have held a whopping 200,000 fans during the 1950 finals is a must-visit place for all sports lovers.

Santa Teresa

Sprawling 19th century mansions, stunning architecture and captivating surrounding await those who visit the Santa Teresa neighbourhood. The area took off in 1896, when the city centre was transformed into tracks for Rio's new electric tram, the bonde which together with Parque das Ruinas and the Museu Chacara do Ceu are the main attractions here.
