Known as the “Wonderful City”, Rio de Janeiro offers attractions that have rendered the city international fame. Who has never heard about carnival in Rio, the most amazing popular party in the world? Or who has never heard about the Sugar Loaf Mountain and the statue of Christ the Redeemer? Or about the beautiful beaches of Ipanema and Copacabana, that have inspired musicians from all over the world? Or, also, who has never heard about the Tijuca National Park – one of the largest urban forest areas in the world? Rio is all that. And much more.
Visitors seeking for a resort destination, which also provides the sophisticated infrastructure of a modern city, will find all of that in Rio de Janeiro. The rainforest flourishing between the city, the beaches, the colonial architecture providing a reminder of the past - it can all be found within one destination.
Since the city’s weather is hot and pleasant all through the year, Rio does not depend on seasons to attract visitors. Its attractions can be appreciated at any time of the year. There is always something to be done in the city, from exhibitions, theater plays, dance and music shows to sports events for all tastes – such as free flying, much appreciated by all those who enjoy strong sensations on board a hang glider floating above the most famous landscapes of Rio. But the Wonderful City has yet a wide range of other attractions to offer, such as cultural centers, countless museums, churches, famous confectioners’, old streetcars and beaches – many beautiful beaches.
