Known as the Cidade Maravilhosa (Marvellous City), Rio is the heartbeat of Brazil and it enjoys a breathtaking setting on picturesque Guanabara Bay. Rio offers a unique combination of spectacular sightseeing including the Corcovado and Sugar Loaf Mountain and sun-kissed beaches, fabulous entertainment and outstanding natural beauty.

Citizens of this lively, vibrant, sometimes hectic city have a genuine passion for life and music which is exemplified once a year when the whole city goes crazy for Carnival.
