Rio de Janeiro

Rio de Janeiro is considered one of the world’s dream cities – it is located in a beautiful natural environment that brings dramatically together mountains and the sea in a luxuriant tropical setting, all this highlighted by the friendliness of its people. The city is renowned for its white sandy beaches, rain forests and breathtaking views from the mountain tops that surround it, two bays, and many lagoons, also being one of the main cultural capitals of Brazil – museums, cultural centers, historic buildings, music halls and theaters; great choice of restaurants, shopping malls and tourist attractions. If you have never been to Rio, this is your best opportunity. If you already know Rio, the city is for sure prettier than ever before.
