  • Tourist spot of Brasilia, is worth knowing. Has monitored visits, but we didn't know. So, better search and view visiting times.

  • Consider the Itamaraty Palace the most beautiful to visit in Brasilia. Beauty is found, and inside a Palace full of precious works of art, and important historical objects. Well thoughtful attendants, visit organised, with important information in the country's history. Scheduled visitation. I think it's an unmissable monument. Recommend!

  • 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.
