This is the first hill up on the way to Rio's famous Sugar Loaf. It offers it's own marvelous view from the top (215 meters) but its base is also a good place for hiking.

We hiked up this hill, which was great fun. It only took about 45 minutes. The view from Morro da Urca was splendid!

Great place to visit and appreciate the view. Maybe you could have lunch and then enjoy the sunset. The cable cars offer a wonderful view of the city. Enjoy !

What a great place for a relaxing afternoon drink of the traditional Caipirinha, admiring the views, taking far too many photos of not only the views but also the marmosets making their presence felt by their adorable antics.

We were lucky to find a quiet afternoon although people arrive earlier to get a nice spot to see the sunset. The place is well maintained and the area, safe. Although 80 reais each, worth it.

Downtown Rio is the place where this city was born.
With modern skyscrapers sharing space with historical
buildings and landmarks, this neighbourhood is living
proof that the old and the new can live together
harmoniously. As you would expect, downtown is where
all major companies house their offices. However, the
region isn’t restricted to businesses. Gems such like
the “Paço Imperial,” which is a cultural centre that
