1/50.- Tourist Information Rio de Janeiro. Welcome to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil!
Rio de Janeiro is definitely one of the nicest cities in the world. Rio de Janeiro has everything: green hills, blue skies, rocky mountains, a beautiful bay, islands, nice beaches ...
But what has made Rio famous is its carnival. The festival is celebrated throughout the city (streets, squares, clubs, beaches, almost everywhere), but the main event takes place in the Samba Stadium, the Sambodrome. (Click on the picture to see a video of the carnival in Rio's Sambodrome)
On the following pages I will give you a sneak preview of this cosmopolitan city, accompanied by some tourist tips. At the end of the tour I will give you information about the Carnival in Rio de Janeiro (with an impressive video).
