Colonial Salvador

Duration
3 Days
Prices From:
US$ 395

Discover unique Salvador, the first capital of Brazil. With an option to stay in the heart of the Colonial Town or on the amazing coastline, this tour is an essential Brazilian experience.


With a culture as colourful as its architecture, Salvador has a distinctly different feel (and accent) to the rest of Brazil. Spend 3 days getting to know this exciting corner of Latin America, where just a touch of Africa creates its own distinctive flavour.

Staying on the beach just outside the city, you’ll immerse yourself in Salvador’s history on day two. This is Brazil’s first colonial capital dating back to 1549. A half day city tour takes you to Barra Lighthouse for a fantastic view over the city’s best beach. Visit Teatro Castro Alves, then go on to the Pelourinho, Salvador’s UNESCO World Heritage listed historic centre to enjoy the city’s Baroque architecture at its finest.
