Besides Carnival extravaganze, there are a few interesting places you should visit to spice up your stay at the city of Rio de Janeiro. Take a look at the following picks and choose one that suits you the most:
The Three Best Sites To Visit During Rio Carnival 2017 –
1. The Sugar Loaf Mountain, Rio de Janeiro –
The well-recognized symbol of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, the rounded rock peak of the Sugar Loaf rises up to 394 meters above the beaches and the city. Its summit is one of the most appealing places tourists visit, for getting the wonderful views of Rio and the harbor as well as for the thrill of riding in a cable car operating between the Sugar Loaf and the Morro da Urca, a lower peak from which a second cable way connects to the city.
2. Christ the Redeemer –
The Christ the Redeemer statue is one of the most beautiful monuments in Brazil, located at the top of the Corcovado Mountain in the Tijuca National Forest. It’s situated 2,320 feet above the city of Rio de Janeiro. In fact, it’s approximately two-thirds the height of the Statue of Liberty’s height starting from base to torch. Offering breathtaking views, the statue introduces its visitors to a colorful history that makes the Christ the Redeemer worth exploring!
3. Iguaçu Falls –
The place where Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay meet, the spectacular Iguacu river drops in a semicircle of 247 waterfalls. Just above the falls, the river is narrowed to one fourth of its usual width, which makes the force of water much stronger. However, some of the falls have height over 100 meters and they cover a broad area that you’ll never see all of them once. Rest assured that, you will be able to get the broadest ever panorama from the Brazilian side. Being protected by the UNESCO acclaimed Iguacu National Park, the falls are the home to more than 1,000 birds and mammal species including ocelots, otters, deer and capybaras – all these sightings make Iguacu Falls well worth destination to explore during Rio Carnival 2017.
