A visit to the extensive Botanical Gardens starting from its postcard view of the Barbosa Rodrigues Alley (named after its director and botanist) created in 1808 by the King Dom João VI at the time of the United Kingdom of Portugal, Brazil and Algarves, offers a fascinating collection of more than 7,000 species of tropical plants  A ride in Santa Teresa’s old tram – “bondinho” is excellent and inexpensive way of seeing some amazing views of the city including the 18th century Carioca Aqueduct with its amazing arches in the Lapa district. Also, go there to enjoy vibrant nightlife and excellent Brazilian music. The iconic event is the top Samba Schools Parade at Carnaval along the ‘Passarela do Samba’ or ‘Sambódromo’. A must is a cable car ride to the peak of the Sugar Loaf (1,300 ft/396 m) for breathtaking and unforgettable views of Guanabara Bay, Copacabana, Ipanema, Christ the Redeemer on Corcovado and Tijuca Forest. Experience beach volley or ‘futevolei’ (a kind of volleyball played with the foot) as the natives do on the pristine white sandy beaches. You will certainly be delighted with whatever you choose to do.
