If your time is limited, this 1-day tour is an excellent option to see the best of Rio. In the morning, you will take a panoramic tour of downtown Rio. The tour passes by the Sambodrome and includes a stop at the Metropolitan Cathedral, built in a pyramidal form with an internal diameter of 314 feet (96 m) and a height of 263 feet (80 m).
Familiarize yourself with traditional Cinelândia Square with its historical buildings, the Municipal Theater, the National Library, and the National Museum of Fine Arts. Through the Aterro do Flamengo, you will be taken to the neighborhood of Urca where Sugar Loaf is located.
Travel to the top of the mountain in two steps by cable car. The first cable car takes you to Urca Hill, a vantage point 705 feet (215 m) high with beautiful views of Guanabara Bay and its islands, the Rio-Niterói Bridge, and Corcovado Mountain. A second cable car takes you up to the top. At 1296 feet (395 m) you will gaze over Copacabana beach, the Santa Cruz fortress, and several beaches of Niterói.
After the morning tour, enjoy lunch at a seafood restaurant, before traveling to the Cosme Velho Train cog station at the bottom of Corcovado Mountain. Travel through the dense Tijuca rainforest to the top of the mountain and the 125-foot (38-m) Christ Redeemer Statue.
