Rio needs no introduction, being one of the world’s great cities and a popular tourist destination since the 1950s. Most will have heard of Copacabana and Ipanema beaches, Christ’s statue on Corcovado and the cable car to Sugarloaf Mountain. Less well-known would be the restored colonial districts, the Botanical Gardens and Tijuca National Park on the re-forested slopes above Rio.
