  • We found out and decided the town only once in Rio, looking through the Tours offered by the travel agencies. We went with the DIY! Departure by coach from block six Unique Facil Rodoviaria in Rio, arrival after an hour at the Rodoviaria Petropolis and then central bus downtown, after a short consultation with the turist information at the Rodoviaria. The town is reminiscent of temperatures (13-21 all year!), landscape and architecture, a European mountain resort country, Austrian type. Built by Emperor Dom Pedro II of Brazil in idea and plan of the father as a Regal summer residence, later has become the destination of the nobility of the time with a touch of Imperial style, especially German families emigrated. The Center must be done admiring the palaces and villas, mainly in the stretch that runs along the river between the central square and the Cathedral. Don't miss the Imperial Museum! Some Rio deserves time for visiting, but if you still have a day just busy, go there and enjoy the weather and a visit: worth it!

  • Imperial Museum, Cathedral, the Delighted are must-see attractions for adults and children. It is better to visit all walking, transit and parking are complicated and you can rest in the garden of the Museum on freedom square that gets in the way. Enjoy the old mansions along the way!

Where to stay in Petropolis

Unfortunately, no matter how much you're willing to spend, your accommodations in Petropolis won't be quite as luxurious as Emperor Pedro's former palace. Nevertheless, you can choose from a range of delightful guesthouses and boutique hotels during your Petropolis vacation, many of which are housed in well-preserved colonial buildings and offer spacious gardens to enjoy. The city's old center, with close proximity to the palace and the striking cathedral, remains the most popular neighborhood among tourists. However, you can also find a range of places to stay in the southwestern neighborhood of Quitandinha, which contains a scenic lake of the same name.
