Flights to Rio de Janeiro
Rio de Janeiro is one of the most spectacular cities on the planet. Even the well-travelled individuals will love what the city has to offer. One of the best ways to appreciate the setting is by going up Sugar Loaf Mountain (Pao de Acucar), where you'll get a fantastic 360-degree view of Rio and Guanabara Bay. Across the Bay, you will see the Rio-Niteroi bridge (13,9 km long). Cariocas (Rio natives) disagree on which point gives the most wonderful view: Pao de Acucar (Sugar Loaf) or Cristo Redentor (Christ the Redeemer), Elected one of the "New 7 Wonders of the World". It is well worth experiencing both and deciding afterwards which view is better. Notice how the natural harbour is surrounded by lush, high mountains that meet the sea in the world-famous beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema.
Christ the Redeemer on Corcovado Mountain gives an even higher perspective, and is the most well-known and recognized landmark of Rio. Between other main attractions in Rio belongs samba and Carnival celebration.
