    Is a tour not to be missed, as well as the attractions of the site itself, which already are worth (history, facilities, vista, etc), is very close to several other places to visit in downtown Rio. And has a bit of the stories of the heroes who gave their lives in the European theatre of operations in WW 2.

    Visit this site was like a trip back in time and gratitude to those who gave their lives for our country. Stay at the Aterro do Flamengo and has on the ground floor the Museum!

    It is the monument to the fallen by Brazil who fought in the second world war. It is located between the area of Botafogo and glory, great for walking it and explore it. Regalame your vote.

    To all my fellow runners out there, there is a good cycling track behind the monument, that goes all the way down to the beaches on south. Worth giving a try on weekend mornings.

    It gives you a nice view of Guanabara Bay. However, the monument contains little information about Brazilian participation in WWII. You can walk to here from the modern museum of art close by (it takes few minutes).

    A tiny but important museum on the participation of Brazil in the WWII. A place to reflect and to take awesome pictures.

Where to stay in Rio de Janeiro

Accommodations in Rio de Janeiro cover as diverse a spectrum as the city itself. At the top end, you can find plenty of luxury hotels along the beaches of Zona Sul, the city's southern zone, which includes the renowned Copacabana and Ipanema beaches. For something to suit a budget, but with good beach access, look around the less crowded neighborhoods of Catele and Flamengo. If you want to stay as centrally as possible, without feeling like you're in a business district, look for lodgings in the colorful, bohemian neighborhood of Santa Teresa.
