Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

The Cariocas (residents of Rio) have a saying that God created the world in seven days, the eighth he devoted to Rio de Janeiro.

As you stand on top of Sugar Loaf Mountain at sunset, with the city curling its way around the granite peaks, forests and golden beaches below you, and with the iconic statue of Christ the Redeemer, arms aloft, high behind you on Corcovado, you may be inclined to agree.

The sheer beauty of Rio is breathtaking, and the vibrancy is captivating.

Exploring Rio

It is a city that will keep you busy and probably tire you out, whether you are exploring the colonial centre, relaxing with the locals on the golden sands of Copacabana or Ipanema, taking the rickety tram to bohemian Santa Teresa or hang-gliding off one of the peaks to the beach below.

You could also take in a football game at the mighty MaracanĂ£ or wander around the Museum of Contemporary Art in Niteroi, housed in a voluptuous building which the architect claims was inspired by all that is famous in Rio - the white beaches, the mountains, the churches and the beautiful suntanned women.
