So you're flying down to Rio and looking for the hottest beaches and best carnival events. Or you're already there and feeling daunted by the city beyond Ipanema and Copacabana. Either way, this comprehensive guide to the "Cidade Maravilhosa" is the answer!
There's plenty of beach and nightlife glitz to find in this world-famous city, but Rio offers far more history, culture, and nature than most visitors imagine. You can visit royal palaces, inspired museums, and colonial churches lined with gold - or climb impressive mountain-tops and hang glide over dazzling bays and forest.
The application has 200 entries written by an expert on Rio, with everything from samba music and eating out to soccer stadiums, art galleries, and favela tours. Plus there are essential tips on navigating the airport, city transport, and recommendations on accommodation for every budget. One of the joys of Rio is simply meeting Cariocas - the city's animated residents - so expect plenty of insider guidance on the friendliest spots in town.
Rio! is exceptionally easy to use: you can sort by area, price, type, or by places closest to you - wherever you are. Each attraction, restaurant and nightspot is mapped directly by the author, so there are no misleading directions. Over 500 photos will help you visualise the city's many sights.
