Day 2

Sugar Loaf and Corcovado tour

You begin with a drive through downtown Rio, passing by the Sambodrome, the Metropolitan Cathedral, in pyramid form, with internal diameter of 96 meters and height of 80 meters. Visit the traditional Cinelandia Square with the many historical buildings, the Municipal Theatre, the National Library and the National Museum of Fine Arts. Visit the neighborhood of Urca where one of the world's most recognizable landmarks sit: Sugar Loaf. The journey by cable car is made in two steps. The first cable car takes passengers to Urca Hill which is 215 meters high and from where one can have a beautiful view of Guanabara Bay and its islands, the Rio-Niteroi Bridge and Corcovado Hill. It is then onto the Sugar Loaf itself where panoramic views of downtown Rio, the city airport, Christ the Redeemer in the distance and Copacabana Beach are all on offer.

It is now onto Corcovado to stand at the feet of the immense statue of Christ. Taking a cog railway to the summit it is a short walk through the many stalls selling all incarnations of the statue to arrive at the country's most recognizable site and yet another world icon, the statue of Christ the Redemeer. With stunning views all over Rio it is a photo opportunity not to be missed and never forgotten. Return to your hotel.
