Rio de Janeiro is not a city lacking tourist attractions. The key attractions -- Cristo Redentor (Christ the Redeemer), Pão de Açúcar (Sugar Loaf), Copacabana, and Ipanema beaches -- are world famous. Besides football stadiums, museums, hiking trails, samba clubs, a botanical garden, and an array of places to watch the sunset. These are still only components of a bright, vibrant, mosaic of pieces that is Rio.
Below is a list of places to visit for people looking to explore some lesser-known but still exciting attractions in Rio. Enjoy!
