Holidays to Rio de Janeiro City
Known as a Cidade Maravilhosa (Marvellous City), Brazil’s capital Rio de Janeiro is an extraordinary city of contrasts: skyscrapers and beaches, shanty towns and luxury condos, peaceful gardens and jumping bars. It really does have it all. The city reaches the next level during the famous Carnival in February, but is entertaining and unmissable all year round.
A buzzing 4km stretch of white sand. Expect sound systems, micro bikinis, footballers, cocktails and beach sellers.
