Sugar Loaf cable

The light tropical city is divided into two connected hills provide a 360º view of every corner of Rio, of each detail, each piece of the puzzle that form the wonderful city.

Being one of the main sights of the City entrance is sometimes time-consuming mainly on weekends. However, lucky for days and some people have already gotten in without having to wait. The ticket cost is compensated by the trip brings us and nature shows. (R$62-adults;R$31-6 to 21 years). Choose a sunny day, go in the afternoon and watch the sunset is something you can't miss when we think of visiting this place.

While we wait for the descent from the peak tram underscores the view of circular motions that make walking so wonderful means of transport. Are steel cables that run with all his might on turntables visible to those who might have some doubts about the safety of the gondola.

Passes-if the ticket by machine, the doors open and continued toward the gondola. That elevator, shy, spacious, modern, friendly, white and black, all-glass where the landscape is seen in detail on every angle of your climb. When you enter this trip time goes by fast, it's stable, safe and with a wonderful view that makes us want to stay there. When we arrived at our destination we feel like we're at an amusement park-Let's walk once again.

The first Hill of sugar loaf is the Morro da Urca. Some people tackle the footpaths and reach it without going through the gondola. Up here the admiration comes by the enormous space that exists here. It's like another reality, another world, another River. There are several elements that call us attention. Look for the old Streetcar and we both like the evolution. Flipped out of the wood to metal, the rectangle in the streamlined tram way that exists today, from small room for plenty of room, the glass in the middle of the train for the full glass, snapped the Brown to black and white. Born a new gondola.

Here we are also presented with huge gardens overlooking every place that is part of our river. Here we have the privilege of seeing the upper riches of this Amazon City. Since Christ, Copacabana, the Guanabara Bay, the Islands, the airport, the Niteroi bridge, the center of the River, the Cathedral finally numerous views that gave hours of writing. Even in this first Hill there are several bars where you can taste the victuals of the wonderful city. Is coconut water, acai, a nice beer or a popsicle all refresh our journey of discovery of these hills of tropical light.

We enter the second journey that brings us to the highest hill of the Sugar Loaf (Pão de Açúcar). His curve is so pronounced that even the Bondxi has come up with all his strength. We reached the top and leave to the discovery. Trees of tropical beauty, birds that fly over the skies in freedom, paths made of leaves, observatories to various points of the city, adventure on descents and ascents to the exploitation of this hill. The adventure continue. In this nature walk are several people from different cultures, countries, cities, boyfriends, marriage, families, lonely, photographers and flags. Many flags of other countries use to photograph the beauty of the River with the flag of each.  Other points arise. Next to the existing here arises only bar the main point where a sea of people waiting for the Sun fall. The more fantastic this Hill is having, in addition to this fantastic view, the opportunity to see animals right next to us. Birds of wings wide open with breathtaking speed and Raptors that open wings and take us with them until sunset as expected from this place. A sunset that's covering the hills light this city that embraces the Christ and falls along the two brothers on the beach of Ipanema.  When he went into hiding, the last cable car trips were made. Calm down there he Hill the hill with a longing that would let us stay on that timeless beauty that would forever remember.

Looked back, waved with excitement, because who's going to once a cable car back there if only to say more until now.

Weekend roadmap: Brazilian Spring

The fall came to an end, and not surprisingly, winter occupies its space. But, in 2013 the climate is "Brazilian Spring". In every corner of the country people are on the streets and call for change. In Rio, we were 100 thousand on Monday and more than 1 million in the fifth (although they said 300 thousand). The people known for their joy, finally was angry. Much more than 20 cents, the claims also for education, health and politics.

For this script, the TodoRio in addition to their weekly highlights shows and parties, also supports and expects many positive changes in the city with the arrival of the "Brazilian Spring".

Weekend roadmap: Ipanema

Darling, charming, stylish and super ... birthday girl. We're talking about Ipanemaneighborhood supplementing 119 years today of pure inspiration and contribution to the cultural life of Rio de Janeiro.

It was there that, sitting at a table of the old Bar Veloso (today, the girl from Ipanema), Tom Jobim and Vinícius de Moraes finished the letter of March Waters. Not to mention the girl from Ipanema, one of the most played songs in the world, which had its inspiration in the neighborhood--or on girls that attended. Tropicália and Bossa Nova also were born and grew up in the streets; the Circo Voador rode his first canvas in Arpoador and there landed with their rock concerts. This just to name a few examples.

In honor of Ipanema, we gather some events that are the face of the neighborhood: eclectic, dictators of fashion and full of grace!
