Join us for a guided tour to the most important must-sees in Rio, the Christ Statue, Sugar Loaf Mountain and the famous Copacabana .
Visit the Christ Statue, one of the new seven wonders of the world that sits 700 meters above sea level on Corcovado Hill. Following a scenic drive, arrive at the foot of the hill to take the tram or vans to the summit and enjoy breathtaking panoramic view of the city.
Sugar Loaf, Portuguese Pão de Açúcar, is a landmark peak overlooking Rio de Janeiro and the entrance of Guanabara Bay. Named for its shape, the conical, granitic peak (395 metres) lies at the end of a short range between Rio de Janeiro and the Atlantic Ocean. A cable car runs from its summit to the adjacent Urca Hill, near the foot of which is the site of the Praia Vermelha Campus of the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro.
Copacabana is a bairro (neighbourhood) located in the South Zone of the city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. It is known for its 4 km (2.5 miles) balneario beach, which is one of the most famous in the world.
