Bustling with samba music and all-night street parties, no city encapsulates the spirit of Brazil better than Rio de Janeiro.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Rio de Janeiro: Petropolis (Cervejaria Bohemia, Catedral de Sao Pedro de Alcantara, &more), Museu de Arte Contemporanea de Niteroi (in Niteroi) and Scuba & Snorkeling (in Arraial do Cabo). The adventure continues: kick back and relax at Copacabana Beach, tour the pleasant surroundings at Barra da Tijuca Beach, take in nature's colorful creations at Jardim Botânico do Rio de Janeiro, and don't miss a visit to Corcovado - Christ the Redeemer.

To see photos, maps, more things to do, and tourist information, refer to the Rio de Janeiro trip itinerary maker tool.
