If you are coming to Rio you cannot leave without visiting the main sights and tourist attractions. Soccer aficcionados will run first thing to the Maracana Stadium
. Other mortals will probably first start with either the Sugarloaf
, with its famous cable car, or the Corcovado
, topped by the statue of Christ, the Redeemer. This is just the tip of the iceberg, though. Discover the Lapa Arches
and its streetcar, the Botanical Gardens
that date back to colonial Rio, historical churches
, world-class museums...
