A Day in Rio de Janeiro

By Viator, June 2015

No reviews, be the first!

Rio de Janeiro, a city of incomparable natural beauty and incurably addictive culture, isn’t usually categorized as a one-night stand. In fact, once travelers have breathed in the intoxicating combination of sun, sand and samba, they often start mentally mulling over possibilities for permanent relocation. Still, a quick fling in the Marvelous City might be all you get, so you might as well enjoy it while it lasts.

Start off the morning in the revitalized Centro with a light but tasty breakfast of pão de queijo (cheesebread) and suco de maracujá com leite (passion fruit juice and milk) or a small cafezinho (coffee) at one of the juice bars found on practically every corner.
-Ernest White II
