Rio de Janeiro - A Maravilhosa - has undoubtedly the most breath-taking setting for any city in the World. The rounded massive rocks that shoot up towards the sky, the coast-line teeming with coves, the beaches and lagoons. A large city located within a paradise resort. Try the 50 varieties of exotic fruit juices, Churrasco steak and plenty of Samba. The Cariocas love their city, and so do their visitors. Ipanema and Leblon at the South end of Ipanema is the most prestigious and classy part of the beach. The best people watching, the finest restaurants and shops are here. The Santa Teresa hill, in the cultural heart of the city, between the Christ Redeemer and Lapa, offers a bucolic and picturesque view of the historical Rio de Janeiro. The preserved colonial and art deco architectures, the paved streets with the old popular yellow tram, the many samba bars and gastronomic restaurants create a unique chic and authentic atmosphere in the heart of the city. At no more than 15 minutes from the nicest beach of Rio.
