Rio de Janeiro, the heart of Brazil
Book a flight to Rio de Janeiro to go on an unforgettable voyage through the heart of Brazil ! The « Cidade maravilhosa » (marvellous city in Portuguese) offers one of the most unique fusion of buildings and sites of breath-taking natural beauty in the world.
Copacabana, Ipanema, Botafogo… a trip to Rio de Janeiro makes your mouth water as these beaches with legendary names feed the imagination. But it is also the natural wonders that dominate the city: the Sugarloaf, Corcovado peak (that overlooks the legendary statue of Jesus Christ), or even the peak of the two brothers (morro dos dois irmaos in Portuguese), which is connected by hiking trails starting from the Leblon neighbourhood.
In Rio de Janeiro, nature is never far, largely due to the immense forest of Tijuca. Situated right in the middle of the city, it has many historical sites, and a multitude of exotic birds. Underneath, close to the Rodrigo de Freitas Lake, admire the discreet Botanical Garden and its many varieties of tropical plants.

The Brazilian megalopolis has grown like no other a jeito of its own, between South American vibrancy and European lifestyle, all in the music. Samba, choro, bossa nova… The most beautiful pages of Brazilian music were written here and the many concert halls of Lapa, Santa Teresa and Copacabana invite travellers to discover the local scene of abundant talent.
Lovers of museums and monuments will not be left out: in Rio de Janeiro, the glorious past of the former capital of Brazil resonates at every street corner in the districts of Centro and Santa Teresa, and in the National Historical Museum or the Museum of Fine Arts.
