    Rio de Janeiro - Downtown

    by ATXtraveler Written Dec 24, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When most think of Rio de Janeiro, most immediately think of Copacabana, Ipanema, Corvocado and Sugarloaf. Couple these with a trip to Maracana Stadium, and most will think the big 5 of Rio have been met. Sarah and I ventured away from the masses one day, to another spot we figured would be full of action packed excitement. What we found instead was a large city's downtown area almost vacant!

    Granted, this was a Saturday, so we figured there would not be the normal madness of the general workday, but figured there would still be plenty of tourists and businesses open. Wrong! The place looked like a ghost town, with only the occassional person enjoying the park, and a few taxi drivers looking for the odd tourist like ourselves that ventured out.

    Make sure not to miss the Paço Imperial, Candelária Church, Museu Histórico Nacional, and Rio de Janeiro Cathedral.
