RIO DE JANEIRO
Rio de Janeiro is a cosmopolitan city. It is the second largest city in Brazil, with a population of about 6 million people, and the most known and important destination for foreign tourists.
Globally recognized as the “Wonderful City”, it is truly unique in many ways, especially for its exuberant nature, pleasant climate and for presenting one of the most beautiful coastal zones of Brazil, perhaps the world. Copacabana, Ipanema, Leblon and Barra da Tijuca are just some of the many beautiful beaches of Rio. Christ The Redeemer, Sugar Loaf, Tijuca Forest, and Maracanã Stadium are some of Rio's remarkable landmarks. Also worth mentioning is the historical patrimony, dated from Brazil’s colonial period.
Rio’s gastronomy is another high point. But it is the typical Brazilian cuisine that stands out among so many options inspired by all the cuisines of the world. And, of course, Rio offers all the hotel, shopping, entertainment, mobility and transportation facilities that Brazilian or foreign tourists require for a visit to the Marvelous City to be unforgettable.
