that's a place that you can walk safely and have good food. Also sometimes you had concerts over there. So you can eat, look at scenic views, hear good music and also learn sometihing about brazil history.

Great place to take nice pictures. They have a really good cafe/restaurant where you can sit by the water and watch people paddle-board and swim. The museum itself was not very interesting

Still a military base, this fort is mostly a museum which explains a period of history post-monarchy. A small charge is payable, and this means that the area is very safe and has the best restaurant views in Copa.

The fee to enter the fort is almost nothing and it's really worth a visit. Not just for the fantastic views and nice confeitaria Colombo were you can grab a bite but it gives you an insight in Rio's work of defences trough time.

Copacabana
The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional
and old areas from Rio de Janeiro. This neighbourhood
is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and
traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit of
everything: bars with music, pubs, street fairs,
chaotic streets, and many shops. All these things and
more live side-by-side. There are options for all
price points and tastes. However, the most powerful
