    The imperial museum is located in the former summer residency of the Brazilian Imperial Family. It's a very beautiful place that I love to visit whenever I have opportunity. It's a History lovers must go!

    Excellent! Very well laid out, happy and helpful staff. We didn't do a tour - there were 4 of us and did a walk-about. Well marked from beginning to end. Beer at the start and another two as you go (all different but they were all delicious). You get to keep the little glass as a reminder you've been there. Nice touch!

    Having been to a few beer distilleries in the past, this is certainly one of the more interactive , informative and engrossing. Reminded me very much of Heinekens museum in Amsterdam, now owned of course by Ambev who own Bohemia.

    Anyway, great hour or so to learn about the history of beer but also understanding the whole process. Great for couples and family alike.

    José Augusto (property owner) wonderfully told the story of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, how he wrote not only “O Pequeno Principe” but many other books. The place is very comfy, the visit through his living room (in which there are many furnitures, collectable items and versions of the book “O Pequeno Principe”) and his little gift shop is very nice. Since i didn’t have an appointment I couldn’t visit when we tried the first day. However, we did make an appointment for the next day and we could visit. Even though the price seems a bit high, its totally worth it!

    I would love to come back!

    We stopped here as we were leaving Petropolis. There were people doing a photo shoot, as it is a glamourous location. Walking around the outside of the hotel was impressive to see the scale of the building, also the large lake and parkland around.

    Nice hotel, rooftop jacuzzi, romantic rooms, beautiful garden, but unfortunately right next to a busy highway.

    The small house on two levels is full of inventions, such as a special shower head, also a small bed which doubled up as a desk. There are quotations around the house in English describing the life of Santos Dumont, who was a hero of early aviation and no mean inventor.

    This beautiful church dominates the city, with a tall spire, and was inspired by the great French churches and cathedrals. The building was started in 1884 and opened in 1925. Inside there is a pipe organ, and some delightful stained glass. The building feels quite light and airy. The cathedral is dedicated to Sao Pedro de Alcantara.

    There are many old houses along the central avenue, with water in the middle. Some of the houses are museums, or pousadas. The recent flood damage has been repaired beautifully.

    Great adventure on a sunny day. We were able to take fantastic photos. The folks there were very accommodating too. Wear your sneakers as a little bit of hiking is involved. The road up the mountainside is a bumpy dirt road so go slow and anticipate cars coming the other way. Will certainly come back again especially when we have guests from out of the area
