There are plenty of stops for scenic vistas in Rio: Sugarloaf, Cristo, etc. Parque Lage is altogether different. Built as a mansion by a Brazilian businessman to impress his Italian wife, romance still abounds on the grounds of this park. Walk through gardens that barely hold nature at bay: there are plenty of bridges and paths and follies. The building... More

Wild nature, more so than in the botanical gardens. Best spot to have breakfast in Rio, just make sure you go early, or be ready to wait in line! Def worth it though!

Beautifully located in the middle of the forest close to the Botanical garden in Rio. They serve a simple but ok breakfast inside the historical building just by the fontain/pool. Great for a slow walk through the tropical forest park, watching exotic plants and if you're lucky spot tucanos and curious monkeys. Highly recommended.

On the outskirts of the Corcovado the park is a chunk of the Atlantic forest that remains. It has a beautiful architecture, amazing gardens, and a lot of silence. The mansion has a restaurant and the best art school on Rio de Janeiro. One of the best locations to photograph the Christ.

near the jardim Botanico, here you can feel like in heaven, out of traffic, relaxed atmosphere, peaceful, you can read a book sit near the central pool of this '800 building, directly under the Christ! also the breakfast is very good but often long queue for that.

It is near the Botanical Gardens and it is an old mansion in the middle of a forest garden that goes all the way up to the Christ (Corcovado). The waiters are REALLY SLOW. be prepared.
