Your tour begins outside of Cinelândia metro station, in front on the monument in the center of Cinelândia Square. Greet your guide here approximately 15 minutes in advance of the tour’s 11am start time.
Awaken your palate with a pastel, a crisp pastry parcel filled with meat, potato, or cheese, and refresh with the sweet flavor of a tropical Amazon fruit. Stroll past the impressive Lapa Arches (Arcos de Lapa) and sit on the iconic Selarón Staircase (Escadaria Selarón), covered in 2,000 vibrant tiles, to eat a soft pães de queijo.
Then, jump into a taxi for the short journey to Santa Teresa, a vibrant neighborhood famed for its nightlife. Taste Portuguese snacks and sip cold Brazilian beer in a carioca boteco (bar) and then enjoy a sit-down meal in a restaurant boasting stunning views of Rio.
Following a cold Caipirinha, Brazil’s national cocktail, you’ll satisfy your sweet tooth with local desserts and bid your guide farewell in the Santa Teresa neighborhood.
