  • Cool by architecture, by objects and for anyone who has interest in the diplomatic area. Worth visiting if you have more time in Brasilia

  • The Palace of diplomacy is a spectacle. I imagine that foreigners have a nice impression of Brazil if they take into account the works of art, architecture and gardens of this building.

  • Exquisite place and beautiful architecture. Some Brazilian artists on display. Pay a visit, it's worth it.

  • 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.
