    What to Expect
    You'll start the tour in front of the meeting point at 2:00pm in front of Olinda Rio Hotel at Atlantic Av or at 2:35am at Love Time Hotel in Gloria, where you will go with your tour guide by Metro (included in the price) to Gloria Neighborhood. Your first visit will be at the Selaron Steps, with artwork done by a Chilean Artist. It is a huge mosaic with tiles from different part of the world spanning 400 steps in Lapa area, also known as "The Great Madness".

    Your second spot will at Praça Mauá. The square marks the beginning of Avenida Rio Branco Avenue and also of the Port Region, the central area of Rio. Around the square are important buildings, such as the Rio Art Museum (MAR) and the Museum of Tomorrow.

    From there you will walk by the Olympic Boulevard to see all the new different art works in the area, including the very large (it’s in the Guinness Book of Records!) 3,000-square-meter ‘Etnias’ mural. Finally, you'll go to the Pedra do Sal. Originally a slave village, Pedra do Sal is a place with special significance for Cariocas of African descent and fans of samba and choro music. It’s a culturally rich area, full of art, and definitely worth a visit and stopping by for a cold beer! Your guide will walk you back to the subway station and show you where you need to get off to return to your accommodation. For those staying in the center of the city the guide will give you the best tips for bars, restaurants and museums if you want to explore the area after the tour. Great Sunset from there!

    This was my first Urban Art tour in any city, and boy has it given me the bug to do more! Rio has quite a culture of urban art, perfectly exhibited by the investment made in it for the Olympic Boulevard. As a self confessed idiot when it comes to art, this tour was ideal as it
