Recife : Michelin's recommendations
In Recife, the legacy of the Portuguese and Dutch colonists is intertwined with the urban bustle of this rapidly growing metropolis. With five rivers running across it, the city is composed of several islands, connected by numerous bridges, hence its nickname of the "Brazilian Venice". Its Baroque churches, unique carnival and unbridled nightlife certainly make an impression on all who visit. Beware, however, of crime, which has been on the rise for some time.
