Rio, an unforgettable place

Rio is a unique city. Few places in the world are able to bring together, in harmony, abundant nature and a city in full swing. You’ll find stunning beaches - some wild ones -, an urban forest, lagoons, waterfalls and a beautiful bay, all within one city. Here, we welcome all tourists with open arms! When you think of Rio or even Brazil, the Christ the Redeemer is usually the first image that pops into your mind. The famous Sugar Loaf cable car, from which you get to witness a beautiful encounter between the sea and the mountains, is also iconic. This pair also joins the Copacabana and Ipanema beaches, the Botanical Garden, the Tijuca Forest, the Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon, and so many other places.


The harmony between nature and the urban is what makes Rio such a special place. In 2012, we were the first city in the world to receive the title of World Heritage Cultural Landscape, granted by Unesco (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization), an achievement that makes locals full of pride and puts in evidence the interaction of man and nature.


In Rio, the night does not rival the day and the historical goes hand in hand with the modern. Here, the closeness of differences transforms its multicolored prism in an intense and beautiful way. But Rio’s ace in the hole is the ‘carioca spirit’ that turns its almost seven million residents into special cicerones, always willing to welcome visitors as old friends.


Strolling around the city and living this lifestyle is usually enough to make tourists want to come back. Come to Rio and be amazed by the beautiful conjunction of mountain and sea, discover the history of a city that has always been a reference for Brazil: beauty, history and culture everywhere! Feel the beat of the samba in your heart!
