Statue of the Christ Redeemer

Sugar Loaf

Selaron Staircase

 

The Christ Redeemer´s statue is the most loved and visited site in Rio. Built in 1931 at the top of the Corcovado hill, the monument became one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World. Its observation deck guarantees an exceptional and spectacular view of the city.

The Sugar Loaf stands 400 meters above sea level. The tour starts with a cable car trip from which you can see the wonderful local landscape such as the Guanabara Bay, the Botafogo Bay and the South Zone beachfront area.

Selaron Staircase is one of the most loved neighborhoods in Rio de Janeiro. In addition to its most beautiful views, the neighborhood sends us back to the “old Rio de Janeiro”, with its bucolic atmosphere, lots of local culture and the electrical cable cars. The neighborhood is famous for the strong presence of intellectuals, artists, scholars among others, who look for historical and cultural tours such as visits to traditional studios.

For soccer fans, the Maracanã Stadium is a great place to visit! You can take a guided tour to visit the field, the stalls, locker rooms, the VIP area, the pressroom, the Hall of Fame- where you can see footprints of famous players – and the Soccer Museum, with pictures and great images of the most important games.

The Tijuca Forest, also known as “Tijuca National Park”, is one of the largest urban areas in the world and an excellent program for those looking for outdoor activities, offering many trails among the preserved nature with beautiful landscapes.

In addition to the trails, it is possible to find waterfalls, caves, rivers, and lakes, and ideal areas to rest and go picnicking.

Located in downtown Rio de Janeiro, the City Theater, inspired by the Opera Theater in Paris and inaugurated in 1909, has marble columns and staircases, several sculptures and impressive stained glass windows imported from Europe.
