What you can expect

Your day begins when we pick you up at the hotel/airport/seaport of your preference, and take you on a 1-1:30 hour drive up the mountains to get to Petropolis, and our first stop there is at Quintandinha Palace, former casino/hotel with stunning architecture. Then, we head to the Imperial Museum, that used to be summerhouse to the former Emperor and his court, during the 19th century, followed by a nice walk through or drive by the streets with stops at the Metropolitan Cathedral, Crystal Palace, Bohemia Brewery (a good place for a cold beer and lunch), Ipiranga House (the House of 7 Errors) and the house where Santos Dummont, the inventor of the aeroplane, lived. A stop at the chocolate shop for a nice coffee and chocolate, of course, and then a trip back to Rio, with drop off at your hotel/airport/seaport of preference.
