ITINERARY

Spend a full day soaking up the sights of Rio de Janeiro during a city tour. Begin with a train ride to see the Christ the Redeemer Statue atop Corcovado Mountain, followed by a panoramic (external) visit to the Maracanã stadium and additional
stops at the Sambódromo (Sambadrome), the Metropolitan Cathedral, and the Selarón Steps. After lunch at a steakhouse, ride the cable cars up Sugarloaf Mountain.

Get picked up from your hotel in Rio and drive up to the Cosme Velho station in order to catch the Corcovado Train. The train ride through tropical forest takes about 20 minutes from ground level the top of Corcovado Mountain, where you will reach the Christ the Redeemer Statue - one of the New Seven Wonders of the World.

Once you're back at sea level, drive past the legendary Maracanã soccer stadium (external visit) and head to Sambódromo, the location of Rio's exciting Carnaval. Pay a visit to the distinctive Metropolitan Cathedral, a modern structure that takes influence from Mayan pyramids. Check out the brightly colored tiles of the world-famous Selarón Steps, one of Rio's most distinctive landmarks. Then head to a local steakhouse to sit down to a delicious barbecue lunch.

After lunch, make a final trip to Sugarloaf Mountain, located in the Urca neighborhood. Ride a series of 2 cable cars en route to the summit, first arriving at Urca Hill, and then continuing to the top of Sugarloaf, reaching a height of 1,295 feet (395 m). Conclude the tour with an exquisitely beautiful panorama of Rio de Janeiro.
