Discover the most authentic side to Rio de Janeiro with this walking and metro tour. You'll visit the most important neighbourhoods and monuments in the historic centre- not to be missed!

Guided Tour of Rio de Janeiro

After meeting at Copacabana, one of the best-known beaches in Rio, we'll take the metro to Cinêlandia. Once there we'll see the Marechal Floriano square, one of the city centre's bustling hubs. 

From the square, we'll be able to see the external architecture of the most beautiful buildings in the historical centre of Rio de Janeiro such as the Municipal Theatre, the câmara municipal​ government building and the National Library. We won't enter these buildings, rather admire their beautiful facades; but we will visit the Royal Portuguese Cabinet of Reading, one of the city's most beautiful libraries.

The guided tour will continue along the city's central streets. We'll take a break at a typical bar to try three different types of cachaça: one of Brazil's most famous alcoholic drinks. We'll discover the historical centre of Rio de Janeiro, visiting the Confeitaria Colombo (the city's oldest cafeteria) the Nossa Senhora do Carmo da Antiga Sé royal church, and the Praça XV de Novembro square, and much more!

We'll finish our tour by visiting the historical San Benito monastery.
