Rio & Salvador Tour

Description

Often called “Cidade Maravilhosa” (The Marvellous City) Rio de Janeiro is notorious for its breathtaking scenery and location, nestled between lush-green mountains and crystal-clear seas. These attributes were decisive for Rio to be awarded by UNESCO two titles that are the first of their kind in history: World Heritage Site for Urban Landscapes, and World Capital of Architecture, this last one in partnership with the International Union of Architects (UIA). Capital of Brazil until 1960, Rio is one of the most culturally and economically prominent cities in the country, featuring some of its most famous tourist attractions such as Pão de Açúcar (Sugarloaf Mountain), Corcovado (Christ the Redeemer statue), and the iconic beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema. The city is full of energy and rhythm, and the locals of Rio, the ‘Cariocas’, are known for their carefree spirit and charm. Whether you are looking to experience Carnaval, relax in a naturally stunning environment, or enjoy all the luxuries of a cosmopolitan city, Rio de Janeiro has it all!

Moving onto the first capital of Brazil, Salvador. This city was a major place for the slave trade and is now a thriving centre of Afro-Brazilian life. Salvador is considered the country’s soul and the birthplace of Brazilian culture. The local cuisine, music, dance and vibrant visual arts are all testaments to the pervasive African influence. As one of Brazil’s great historical destinations, the city is filled with churches, homes and forts that reflect stunning Portuguese architecture from the Baroque period. Outside the city lie some of North-eastern Brazil’s most pristine beaches, including the renowned Praia do Forte and Costa do Sauípe. Considered Brazil's most artistic city, Salvador has a lively art scene and its streets are filled with dance and music all year round.
