Rio de Janeiro places of interestFor Carnival fans, Rio de Janeiro is the city tip par excellence. Every year thousands of visitors pour into Rio de Janeiro to marvel at the colourful spectacle with the famous Samba School Parade. The most striking tourist attractions of Rio de Janeiro are of course the famous emblem of the city, the thirty metre high statue of Christ on top of Corcovado Mountain and the “Sugar Loaf”. This 394-meter protruding granite block features prominently in every guidebook. Visitors riding up to the summit by cable car are rewarded with a unique view of the city, making this a must for any holiday in Rio. Rio de Janeiro is also an attractive city tip for beach lovers: take a stroll or work up a suntan on Ipanema and Leblon beaches, on the southern side of the Sugar Loaf, or on the popular Copacabana Beach, which is over four kilometres long. Sipping a glass of Caipirínha as you watch the sunset from there is a not-to-be-missed experience.
