Rio de Janeiro
Bustling with samba music and all-night street parties, no city encapsulates the spirit of Brazil better than Rio de Janeiro.
Go for a jaunt from Rio de Janeiro to Petropolis to see Imperial Museum about 1h 25 min away. There's lots more to do: kick back and relax at Praia de Ipanema, stroll through Barra da Tijuca Beach, admire the masterpieces at Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil - CCBB Rio de Janeiro, and don't miss a visit to Escadaria Selaron.
