It has been said that the anthem of Rio de Janeiro is, “the marvelous city, full of a thousand charms...” Who arrives in Rio in an airplane already knows that the words of the poet are true. It is possible to visit Maracanã, the Sugarloaf, the beautiful beaches, and Christ the Redeemer, whose open arms are ready to receive cariocas and foreigners. Whoever comes to the city can’t leave without visiting these places.
It can’t be debated that one of Rio’s best qualities are its beaches. It has beaches for every kind of taste, from the urban ones, like Copacabana and Ipanema, to the more secluded beaches far from downtown. Watching a sunset from Arpoador Rock is a must-see!
Maracanã stadium finished its renovations, and it has been completely updated for the World Cup in 2014. If at all possible, visit the stadium to watch a soccer match. The locals would recommend seeing Flamengo vs. Flumenese.
The beach and soccer aren’t the only parts of carioca life. Dozens of theaters and museums make Rio the cultural center it is. The recently opened Museum of Art in Porto Maravilha is recommended. The museum is part of a huge project to revitalize the port areas.
Rio has a relatively efficient transportation system. The Zona Sul, where most of the points of interest are located, is serviced by many metro and bus lines. It is good to avoid these during rush hour. The taxis are cheap, especially compared to other Brazilian cities, but it is good to choose one connected to a cooperative to avoid the bad drivers.
Finally, the restaurant scene. Many of the best restaurants of Brazil are located in Rio and the city can stand up to the other large restaurant capitals of the world. There are places for every taste and price range, from the famous and delicious bolinhos de bacalhau (codfish balls), to fine dining. For those with a more refined palate, make sure to explore the neighborhoods of Ipanema and Leblon!

With more than 11 million inhabitants in the metropolitan area Rio de Janeiro still has a very small metro network with only two lines (35 km). The 2-line metro network is complemented by several suburban rail lines (SuperVia) running north and west from the city centre.
The two metro lines have 1,600 mm gauge. Since 1998 Metrô Rio has been operated by Opportrans – Concessão Metroviária S.A.
Saens Peña - Ipanema/General Osório, 18 km, 19 stations
Line 1 runs from the beaches in Ipanema and Copacabana north to the city centre, then turns west via the main railway station to Estácio, where transfer used to be provided to Line 2, and further to the district of Tijuca. The first section of the line opened in 1979 between Glória and Praça Onze (5 km), after 9 years of construction. It was then extended to Botafogo in the south (1981) and Saens Peña in the west (1982). 16 years later, in July 1998 it reached Copacabana (Cardeal Arcoverde station, 1.7 km). It was extended further south to Siqueira Campos in Dec 2002, and to Cantagalo in Feb 2007. It finally reached General Osório in Ipanema in Dec. 2009. Line 1 is totally underground, uses 6-car trains, and has an average station distance of 830 m.

Pavuna - Botafogo, ~ 24 km, 25 stations
Line 2 (partly elevated) started operating as a light rail (Premetrô) line in 1983, parallel to a suburban railway alignment, leaving from Estácio station on Line 1. Slowly and in various stages it was extended towards the northwestern districts and eventually in 1998 it reached its terminus Pavuna and was changed to full metro operation. Once planned to be extended from Estácio into the city centre and to the harbour, crossing Line 1 again at Carioca. To relieve the interchange, a new link was built to allow trains to continue from Line 2 directly on Line 1 down to Glória or Botafogo. The branch diverges near São Cristóvão and runs to Central with an intermediate station called Cidade Nova.
