Rio’s Botanical Garden, really worth the visit. Commissioned by Brazil’s last emperor (yup…) due to his love of Brazilian flora. Very pleasant stroll, that can be coupled with one of Jardim Botanico’s (the neighbourhood) many restaurants.

Science Museum
“If you are taking a day to visit downtown Rio, Museu do Amanha is a nice place to stop. If you are short on time, the museum inside is not a must, but take a walk around the museum and Praça Mauá. Weekends have a lively vibe.”

Monument / Landmark
“The monument overlooking Rio de Janeiro have beyond breathtaking views. It is considered one of the seven new wonders of the world. There are three ways to get to it. You can take a train, van or hike. The train is the most famous and traditional way. The train will take you through Atlantic Forest almost to the top of the Corcovado Mountain. Make sure to have you camera ready and look to the right when the train is almost in the top. I suggest to pick a beautiful sunny day, so you don't miss any of the spectaculars views. ”
