ShoreTrips says...

Rio de Janeiro, the so-called "Marvelous City," is the second biggest city in Brazil. Despite its size, it is also a beach resort, located by the Atlantic Ocean and by the big Guanabara Bay. The city is nestled between mountains and sea, bordered on one side by the blue ocean, on the other by verdant hills. Between them lies a colorful state of mind called "carioca," relaxed and high-spirited.

This tour starts it off right with one of the most popular highlights of the area, The Flamengo Park with its view of the Sugar Loaf. This famous mountain is reached by a cable car at a height of 1,200 feet, an experience you will never forget: looking down at Rio from the Sugar Loaf, one of the most spectacular views in the world.

Downtown is the business heart of Rio - the part of the city where colonial Rio meets modern skyscrapers. Passing through Rio Branco avenue, you will see the Candelaria church. Construction began in the late 18th century and was completed by the time Brazil declared its independence. The headquarters for the major Brazilian banks and commercial enterprises are also located on this avenue.

See the Opera House (Teatro Municipal) and the Cariocan Square. Admire the Church of Santo Antonio, built in the 17th century, as well as the contrast of the modern buildings such as Petrobras and the Cathedral. Next you are on to Rio's aqueduct. Constructed in 18th century, it is now used to connect downtown to Santa Teresa district, an old residential area.
