Rio, the marvellous city

For all its high-profile problems, Rio de Janeiro remains one of the most spectacular metropolises on earth. Rich in culture, nature, history and nightlife, Rio is a place people come back to again and again. It has some of the best music on the continent, the best scenery, the best beaches and, of course, one of the best climates. Not to mention the city’s natives, who must rank as some of the friendliest people on earth.
