No other city in the world with so much charm  bears  the title of “Marvelous” like  Rio de Janeiro. The perfection  of nature, which placed the sea and mountains side by side in perfect harmony, join the Christ the Redeemer, Sugar Loaf, Maracana,  and the festive lifestyle of Rio. More than a postcard, Rio  is a mood, always cheerful and uplifting. The city is about 30 km of coastline bordered by sidewalks and bike paths taken by people all day walking, cycling, running or just watching the movement.

Beyond the beaches – from Copacabana  passing by the neo-hippie fair in Ipanema – you still are close to the  Lagoon  Rodrigo de Freitas, then reaching Flamengo Park going up to the  Tijuca Forest, surrounded  by beautiful natural scenery and plenty of space for sports outdoors. Rio , however, is also about  night life and this can be seen by the  bohemian side of Lapa. The neighborhood, which has experienced a long period of decline,has  returned  to being a meeting point for fans of samba – but also opens space for different musical styles to be seen .

Close to Lapa, the old capital of the Empire and the Republic holds a beautiful architectural collection of nineteenth and twentieth centuries that now houses museums and cultural spaces. Located  in the center of the city,you can see old  buildings  on a walk through Cinelandia, where there are buildings like the Municipal Theater and National Museum of Fine Arts, and around the Praça XV, surrounded by the Imperial Palace, the Centro Cultural Banco of  Brazil,  the France-Brazil House … Once you are  in the business district area , take a cable car, across  Arcos da Lapa and stop by the  Santa Teresa neighborhood with its narrow streets full of houses that serve as studios, bars and shops.

Rio de Janeiro  is home to major cultural and sporting events throughout the year – the city gets even busier in summer when the two main parties of the country attract people from around the world. On New Year’s Eve, tons of fireworks color the skies of Copacabana to greet the New Year, while the merry Carnival takes over the streets,  the Sambadrome is the scene of crowded parades of  samba schools.

 A nice thing to do after the beach,is to drink a  beer in one of the local  bars  where you can snack  on tradicional brazilian food .
