    We enjoyed the visit. Worth every minute. Important: do not take it so precisely (like me) that races, Bermuda shorts are not allowed. That doesn't happen in practice. Itamaraty's words: "Please be advised that on weekdays, is not allowed the entry of visitors wearing shorts, tank tops, shorts, miniskirts, minivestidos, slippers." Not truth. Although we have had this careful, during our visit we saw: men of Bermuda, women in miniskirt and inappropriate dress (That, if we consider the rule established by Itamaraty, I'm not here making value judgment about what's appropriate to wear or not, just playing what I was told, via e-mail, when I booked the tour.) I understand that there's no point in setting a rule if, in practice, she meets. Another important point: when you arrive, please register in the guestbook to streamline. When we arrived, the receptionists were not very clear about it, saying only that we had to wait for the Guide and the schedule.

    Tour not to be missed when visiting Brasilia. Masterpiece of the architect Oscar Niemeyer stuffed with works of art in your decor. Beautiful and interesting shapes and large spans convey the feeling of being in a real Palace!

    Is one of the most beautiful attachments ... But without any accessibility.

Where to stay in Brasilia

Choosing where to stay during your trip to Brasilia can be somewhat difficult. Due to the city's distinctive layout and lack of a historical "center," accommodations have developed in clusters. By far the best range of options surrounds the distinctive green space of Jardim Burle Marx, in the city's two planned hotel districts. You can also find a good selection of lodgings around Vila Planalto, the city's designated political district, which sits not far from Brasilia's main lake. Wherever you decide to stay, make sure it's within reasonable distance of a metro station or bus stop--you'll want good access to public transport in order to easily navigate the city.
