Explore Rio...

                      ...and what's around

From Ipanema beach to Maracanã stadium, you discover Copacabana’s Orla, Arpoador’s sunset, Lapa’s nightlife atmosphere, Santa Teresa bohemian hills, Centro restlessness… It’s better to stay for a week so that you may have time to discover all the things Rio has to offer, using local transports (buses, subway, taxi or uber).

Then, go on a journey in costa verde (Ilha Grande, Paraty, Trindade), in “lakes region” (Arraial, Buzios…), or even mountains (Maromba, Petrópolis…)  

Warning ! Getting around, in Brazil is quite harder than in Europe.

Traffic jam is regular, boards infrequents and Brazilians way of driving is quite ...disconcerting...

Rio map

It’s sometimes difficult to find a location in Rio because of all these hills…

Feel free to print this MAP and to take it away on your journey.


Very useful, comfortable and a good price (R$4.10), the subway enables you to visit the whole zona sul without spending all your money in a taxi… 3 subway lines :
         - one is made for northern Rio (green line)

         - this one to get into zona sul (southern part)

         - the new subway line that brings you until barra da tijuca, a very nice disctrict quite far away from the city center – came out for the Olympics
