A day in Rio

A Magical Day in Rio!

Ideal experience for those who will spend little time in Rio de Janeiro but still want to know the main sights of Brazil’s Marvelous City! We start the day driving through the South Zone of Rio on the way up to the Corcovado Mountain to get to know one of the greatest symbols of Rio de Janeiro – the Statue of Christ the Redeemer. We can’t describe how exciting it is to be in one of the most famous monuments in the world! Admiring a panoramic view of the city at about 2,300 feet above sea level is just amazing! Listed as one of the New Seven Wonders of the world, the statue of Christ gazes out over Rio.

Then, we hit the way down to the famous Lapa Steps (Sélaron Steps) an original and colorful work of art created by assembling more than 2,000 ceramic tiles. The next stop will be at an authentic Brazilian food restaurant for lunch. After having a delicious meal, we start the afternoon in one of Rio de Janeiro’s must place to visit – the Sugarloaf. The cableway up to the top is exciting and memorable! In two stops, first in the Morro da Urca, at an altitude of 722 feet high and then in the Sugarloaf Mountain in itself, at an altitude of 1.300 feet high.

The cable car takes us to appreciate the most iconic views of Rio. The feeling of being up there is unique. Something we can only understand once we get there. Before our journey finishes, we will still have time to go through the famous Copacabana and Ipanema beaches on the way to Mirante do Leblon, a privileged viewpoint from where we can take beautiful photos.
