THE BEST OF RIO
Our Private Tour will begin by visiting the city’s main postcard, Christ the Redeemer, elected in 2007 as one of the new seven wonders of the modern world. The monument is located at the top of Corcovado Mountain, at 710 meters of altitude. There we understand why the city of Rio de Janeiro has the title of “wonderful city”!
We will visit the monument and icon of Rio de Janeiro, Selaron Steps. The gigantic mosaic is the work of the Chilean artist Jorge Selaron, a real trip around the world! Among the more than 6,000 pieces that make up his design, there are tiles from over 140 countries, many of them presented to the artist by tourists and fans of the work. Located between Lapa and Santa Teresa, we also see the popularly known as Lapa Arches, the Aqueduto da Carioca, considered the most important architectural work in Rio Antigo and one of the main symbols of the city.
You will visit Rio de Janeiro “Montmartre” in the Santa Teresa neighborhood. It takes this title due to the large number of artists who have a studio and reside in the place, a cultural excitement.
Visiting the Olympic Boulevard is enjoying the newest attractive area in Rio. Spacious, modern and with a fantastic view of Guanabara Bay. This Location was redesigned for the 2016 Olympic Games. We will be visiting Praça Mauá, “the heart of the port area of Rio de Janeiro”. In its surroundings, we will see beautiful buildings, such as the Museum of Tomorrow, the Museum of Art of Rio (MAR) and the construction of the first skyscraper in the country, the “A Noite” building. In addition, we will get to know the impressive work of Brazilian artist Eduardo Kobra, a mural measuring 3 thousand square meters, which represents the integrative spirit of the Olympic Games. A true message of peace and unity, this Mural “Ethnicities” – “We are all One”.
Finally, we will visit Sugarloaf Mountain and Morro da Urca, a very special place, a historical and touristic landmark for Brazil. A historic landmark, because at its feet, the City of São Sebastião in Rio de Janeiro was founded and touristic, because the inauguration of the Sugarloaf cable car in 1912, projected the name of Brazil abroad. It was the first installed in Brazil and the third in the world. An absolute success!
