Major sights include Sugarloaf, Corcovado and Christ the Redeemer statue, Tijuca National Park, Copacabana and Ipanema beaches, the Botanical Gardens, the Imperial Palace in Petropolis, the World Heritage site of Paraty and much more. Divided into neighborhoods, the guide introduces you to the best of what to see and do, from vibrant Lapa nightlife, to colonial historic center architecture and sweeping southern beaches, as well as comprehensive and detailed coverage of excursions to beach resorts, historic towns and lush green countryside nearby. Special features delve into the nature of modern Rio, including its economy, local traditions, culture and amazing cuisine, as well as Rio s rich architectural traditions, vibrant arts scene and internationally renowned, greatest-party-on-earth, Rio de Janeiro Carnival.
