What to see in Rio De Janeiro
Rio De Janeiro Attractions
Steeped in a rich and diverse cultural history, Rio de Janeiro
is a sightseer's dream with hundreds of spectacular attractions
awaiting them! With the verdant Amazon rainforest, miles of
beautiful coastline and some seriously exciting neighbourhoods to
explore, this city has so much to offer.
A trip to Rio de Janeiro would not be complete without heading up Sugar Loaf Mountain or an obligatory visit to the statue of Christ the Redeemer, one of the seven New Wonders of the Modern World and Rio de Janeiro's most famous landmark. Ipanema is the place to go for sun worshippers, where miles of sugary white beaches and shopping opportunities abound.
Sip on a caipirinha cocktail while singing along to the hit Barry Manilow tune in the Copacabana, or explore the cobblestone streets of downtown Centro, Lapa and Santa Teresa. Sports lovers should head down to the Estádio do Maracanã and enjoy a spot of the national sport of soccer.
Tourists will do well to purchase the Rio Pass which enables the bearer to gain free entry to four of Rio's charging tourist attractions, 50% off on all other admission fees, discounts on nightlife, 15 additional deals, and a free map and guidebook full of need-to-know information. The pass is valid for seven days and can be bought from tourist offices around the city starting from a cost of $50.
