Detailed Itinerary

Reception and assistance at Ezeiza International Airport. Transfer to the selected hotel.
In the afternoon, we make a panoramic tour around the city. We start in Plaza de Mayo (historic square), witness to the most important events of the country since 1810,
from where we can appreciate the surrounding buildings, such as the Casa Rosada (Pink House), the cathedral and the Cabildo (ancient Town Hall). Our second stop is La
Boca, but on the way we pass through icons of the city such as the Obelisk and the Colon Theatre, one of the five best opera theaters in the world. Upon arriving at La Boca,
we visit its colorful streets; we pass by the Conventillos and its well-known Caminito alley, where we can appreciate some handicrafts produced by local artists. We leave the
southern part of the city to head north towards the neighbourhoods of Palermo and Recoleta, where we make a final stop to appreciate the contrast of what we have just
seen with this clearly well-off district, famous for hosting the Recoleta cemetery where relevant personalities are buried.

Nature. During the tour we will visit the three circuits of the Park: Garganta del Diablo (to reach the balcony and viewpoint of the most imposing waterfall in the Park), the
Superior (allows a vertical view of the falls) and the Inferior (provides a closer contact with the vegetation and the falls). During the tour, there is time for lunch (not included) and to take optionally the Great Adventure, an excursion which combines a navigation to some of the falls and a jungle crossing. In the afternoon, return to the hotel.

Garganta del Diablo.

one of the most visited tourist places in the city. From the top, the view is heavenly. Departure from the hotel, panoramic walk along the beaches and ascent to Corcovado
by the Floresta da Tijuca Park´s train. The train was inaugurated by Emperor Pedro II, and the ride allows a review of the Brazil´s history. Besides being an ecological refuge,
Corcovado is part of Tijuca Forest National Park, the largest urban forest in the world. Lunch is included (except drinks). After lunch, departure for a panoramic walk through
the city center to appreciate its ancient and modern architecture. Then, visit the Sugarloaf Mountain, 395 meters above sea level. The mountain is located in the middle of
Guanabara Bay. The ascent is done in two stages until reaching the peak and offers a wonderful panoramic view of the city. After the excursion, return to the hotel.

Free time to enjoy a city which offers a very rich cultural life, landscapes in which the jungle, the sea and the mountains merge to give Rio de Janeiro the status of a unique
