If you have never been to Rio de Janeiro, regardless of whether you are Brazilian or not, it is common to have this doubt of where to go beyond the Christ Redeemer, what are the high points of the city and so on. That’s why I came here to save you when you set up your itinerary to get to know the wonderful city.
The high points of the city are the beaches (obvious). Rio is basically just that, but there are the best beaches to be in and, in my opinion, these are Ipanema beach, Leblon and famous Copacabana.
When passing through Copacabana, be sure to visit the iconic Belmond Copacabana Palace, where I recommend the Sunday Brunch by the pool, or dine at the renowned Cipriani.
Besides the beaches you can visit also:
- Morro Santa Tereza
Visiting the sights with sight and the famous staircase Selarion is a must stop. Once you are there, enjoy your lunch on the third or pleasant day. I love that hipster part of the city and then stay in the small street bars drinking and enjoying the breeze, it’s like the Vila Madalena in São Paulo.
- Cristo Redentor
It is inevitable to think about Rio and not want to go to Christ, so consider another mandatory stop. I recommend that you go in the morning and do not miss on the internet if the sky is clear or cloudy and buy your ticket online in advance to avoid filing monstrous.
- Pão de Açúcar
Automatically is the stop after the visit to Christ. If scheduled in advance, this includes buying the ticket over the internet. In my opinion, the Pão de Açucar has the best view of the city.
- Museu do amanhã
For those who, like me, love a beautiful architectural design the place is a full plate. The iconic building is a project of the famous Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava and is surrounded by the square Maua, in the port area of Rio, being thus the seaside. Well worth the visit.
