I forgot to ask what the weather will be like in late December and early January. Also, how long does it take to get to Rio from Porto Alegre? Is there a bus or a train? Is there anything to see on the way? Should we just fly instead?
RE: More questions
The weather will be very hot and humid in this period; it takes more than 20 hours by bus, I don't know exactly, take a look in my Brasil or South America page for buses links. There are lots of beaches and other interesting cities on the way.
Re: More questions
hello, I am also interested on such transfert, could you be more specific about, buses or train, I wasnt able to find this information on your travel pages.
Thank you for your collaboration

Museum of Art of Rio Grande do Sul – MARGS
With a predominantly neoclassic style, the building was designed by German architect Theo Wiederspahn. Originally it was the headquarters of the Fiscal Surveillance Agency of the Federal Revenue Office. Nowadays, it hosts the largest collection of works in Rio Grande do Sul, many of which were created by renowned local, national, and foreign artists. The internal spaces are illuminated through “vitreauxes” (artistic window glasses) embellishing the major hall ceiling. The building became a historic landmark by the National Historic Site Office in 1983 and it is at Alfândega Plaza, Downtown. You may visit it from Tuesday to Sunday, from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
Guided visit can be scheduled.
