Rio de Janeiro — With 450 year of history, Rio boasts fascinating treasures in its museums with enviable collection. The land of carnival and samba, and of several theaters, music venues, commercial and gastronomic locations open during the whole year. But it is the match of the geography of the area – the sea, mountains and forests – along with the human presence that makes Rio de Janeiro a unique city. Extraordinary sceneries surround many places in the city. It was the first city in the world to be considered UNESCO’s Cultural Heritage of Humanity.

Along with the city’s most famous attractions like Christ the Redeemer (the art deco statue of Jesus Christ) and the Sugarloaf Mountain, the city has also many nature, adventure, religious, historic and cultural tours, such as walks in the Botanical Garden and rides in the Santa Teresa Tram, visitations to the Metropolitan Cathedral and to the Museum of Modern Art, and the possibility of taking off from Pedra Bonita’s ramp and flying over the city.
