Itinerary

STOP ONE - SUGARLOAF MOUNTAIN

Sugarloaf Mountain is a peak that rises 396 meters high and presents a bird’s eye view of Rio de Janeiro from the mouth of Guanabara Bay. To get to the top we take two cable cars called “bondinhos”. The first cable car takes us up to the Urca Mountain and the second to Sugarloaf.

Our Rio Official Guide will facilitate your entrance tickets, avoiding the long lines to acquire them.

STOP TWO – SELARON STEPS

In 1990, Selarón began renovating dilapidated steps that ran along the front of his house. At first, neighbours mocked him for his choice of colours as he covered the steps in fragments of blue, green and yellow tiles – the colours of the Brazilian flag. It started out as a side-project to his main passion, painting, but soon became an obsession. He found he was constantly out of money, so Selarón sold paintings to fund his work and also tiles were donated from all over the world. It was long and exhausting work but he continued on and eventually covered the entire set of steps in tiles, ceramics and mirrors.

The steps has served as the stage for several wold famous music videos such as Snoop Dogg’s “Beautiful”.

STOP THREE – SANTA TERESA

Our second icon we will see is the famous Santa Teresa Tram which we will find at Largo do Guimarães in the bohemian neighbourhood Santa Teresa. This part of town is also famous for artistry, culture and restaurants and we will visit a local art shop/gallery.

STOP TWO – CORCOVADO AND CHRIST THE REDEEMER STATUE

Our first stop will be to visit Brazils main icon and on of the new seven wonders of the world, on top of the Corcovado mountain. This is the highest point we will visit during this day, with 710 meters, and allows for a stunning 360 panoramic view of the Marvellous City.

Our Rio Official Guide will facilitate your entrance tickets, avoiding the long lines to acquire them.
