  • Very cheap and very cool! 10 and 5 reais to the half-price ticket. You will meet inside a submarine, a destroyer and a Navy helicopter. It's worth it!

  • This piece, which was a submarine actually used and became a museum open to visitors, is a valuable opportunity to learn about the inside of something so unknown by most. It's not every day you can get one of those, I found it quite funny. Is really claustrophobic and tall people will suffer a bit to walk inside, but it's worth it! You can know the details and understand a little of the daily life of those who work there. I think it's a stroll especially beneficial for children.

  • Excellent piece of amazing Navy Cultural Centre. On the same day, you can visit this submarine, the Bauru and still give crateon a schooner cruise on Guanabara Bay. A must for those who want to take a walk on the waterfront in style. The submarine was prepared for visitation and has air conditioning, mannequins and characteristic objects composing the scenography. Not only is advisable for people with restricted mobility or have claustrophobia.

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.
