If you want to take a break from the hustle & bustle of Rio, head to Parque Lage. It's a very nice, quiet area for a relaxing walk. Easy to reach via bus or cab.

You MUST go there. I couldn't find it in any guide, but heard about it from friends. It is a beautiful park with view to the Christ and some very antique beautiful buildings and art-expositions.

Parque Lage could be THE PLACE FOR CULTURE in Rio de Janeiro but seems that the Mayor of this city is not interested as the area is vandalized and not protected enough to make a great reform and transform it into a professional Cultural Center in open air for the general public.

I recommend anyone to come here while visiting Rio. Here you can see old buildings, the forest, and even monkeys which will come to the ground! Great for family's as well. It's huge and there's a lot of areas to hike to.

It's a lovely outdoor botanical garden with quaint cafe that is a must try experience as well. The cafe is open for breakfast and picturesque. Bring a picnic for the family or a romantic moment, or a quiet walk alone.

Parque Lage was one of the places I was desperate to visit whilst in Rio and nothing could have prepared more for just how much I was going to fall in love. Firstly, the park all around the mansion is just beautiful, but walking up the steps and inside the mansion was just breathtaking!! The sun shone down, sparkling off... More
