Day 1 Rio de Janeiro
After guests are picked up from their hotels, we will begin this walking tour, which is designed to provide a unique snapshot of the legends and stories woven into the narrow streets and historical buildings of downtown Rio de Janeiro. The walk includes visits to many interesting places, such as the Sao Bento Monastery, Candelaria Church, Praca XV, the Travessa do Mercado, the Imperial Palace, the Banco do Brasil Cultural Center, the Casa Franca-Brasil, Rua do Ouvidor, and Rua Goncalves Dias, where we will visit the traditional Confeitaria Colombo. Our walk will continue down Uruguaiana Street, through Largo da Carioca to the Metropolitan Cathedral, where guests will board transportation that will return them to their hotels.
