Surrounded by mountains, verdant green jungle and stunning beaches – all bathed in sunshine, Rio is definitely a firm favourite with travellers. It’s no surprise then that Rio is known as the cidade maravilhosa (marvellous city). Visit the dance halls, open-air cafes and bars, go surfing off Prainha, hike the rainforests, take a cable car up to the famous statue of Christ, or head to the legendary beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema. And of course, who could forget the famous Rio Carnival – a party in the streets that attracts around 2 million people every year!
