Santa Teresa part of Rio seems to be on everyone's tour list. While the area feels a bit dangerous...if you are with a tour guide you will be fine....I would not do it at night or as a woman alone. The steps are all tiled...More
This was a great tour! When my son and I was picked up from our hotel we were told that we were the only two on the tour and we got a very up close and personal tour with our great tour guide Priscylla! She...More
A nice neighborhood with many small shops and restaurants. Colorful houses, some are maintained, others not so much but you can just imagine how amazing this place once was. I recommend, wearing comfy shoes as this is a hilly neighborhood.
We took the tram up to Sant Teresa main square. The tram tracks go ON TOP of the old Rio Aqueducts so that was interesting.
The neighborhood itself was very empty and sort of gritty. Lots of graffiti on the old buildings but not in...More
Our hotel concierge helped plan a walking trip around downtown. We loved it!! We took the metro to Carioca Station and from there walked through the Centro of old Rio, then along Olympic Boulevard to see the murals (we chose not to go to the...More
charming, character area, with many old houses - a taste of old Rio.Just be a little careful, and mindful of who is around you, it's not exactly a very safe area (probably best not to go there alone), and on the bondinho up there kids...More
We took the tram to this cute little neighborhood. The views from the tram were great too. The breeze we got, the gentle hum and little bumps almost put us to sleep! The tram station is close to Cinelanda Square

Santa Teresa is a bohemian enclave hosting many local artists’ studios. The narrow, winding streets of this neighbourhood were revitalised years ago, and visitors can now stroll through this area to view magnificent mansions dating back to the late 19th and early 20th century. A highlight not miss: Museu Chacará do Céu, a former mansion turned museum which houses works by prominent Brazilian modern artists.

In daytime the parks are general safe, but remember to take your precautions. Don't wear expensive things, like jewelery, fancy watches and that kind off stuff and of course not a lot of money. If you happen to be robbed don't act like a hero just give away what they are after. A privat guide in Santa Teresa can do, but you also manage by your own as long as you are a bit streetwise.I
