Between its forested mountains, shimmering beaches, and fun-loving reputation, it’s hard not to fall under Rio’s spell. This journey provides a look at the city from deep within its historic streets and high atop its iconic peaks. Begin immersed in the beautiful architecture of the colonial district. Learn about the city’s early days and enjoy a glimpse of local life as you explore the heart of Rio. From here, perspectives change rather dramatically as you stand beside the monumental Christ the Redeemer statue high above the city, and take in the sweeping views from Sugarloaf Mountain.

Highlights

Ipanema Beach: Stay a stone’s throw from Rio’s legendary beach immortalized by the song “The Girl from Ipanema.”
