"Take the Santa Teresa trip..." Rio de Janeiro Favorite Tip by Yseut

Rio de Janeiro General: 267 reviews and 265 photos

Favorite thing: Take the Santa Teresa trip with the old train. The view is absolutely beautiful.
When the train is arrived you can take a walk in the lovely streets, look at the beautiful houses. Out of time !
You alos have to go to the Corcovado (take the train, the station is adorable) and the Pão de Açucar for the views.
And don't forget to get your kids to the Jardim Botanico...

Fondest memory: I guess that my best memory of Rio is walking by the beaches (Ipanema and Leblon) early in the morning when it's not too hot, and there are not too many people. The atmosphere is great, peaceful.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
