Visiting Niterói is a blessing on its own for its small town charms, nice tourist attractions and friendly locals. This park is special not only for the chance of relaxation and connection with nature, but also for the magnificent view it provides to Rio de Janeiro. Certainly most of my all time favorites pictures of Rio have been taken from... More

This a good spot for visitor to Rio de Janeiro and Niterói. A wonderful view from the mountain and if you would like to fly this is a good place. There is a place for a non-expensive snack.

This is a must visit if you want to see Rio from a different point. Breathtaking place and not crowded at all!

Besides an astonishing view, the place has a canteen where you can combine the ride with a breakfast (44BRL/ea)until 1pm. You can bring your pet, but not to the canteen. Kids have a playground connected to the nature to enjoy. Last but not least, take a fly in a paraglide.

Niteroi is a city across from Rio accessible by either the ferry or a bus over a very long bridge. This park offers amazing views of RIO and Niteroi. There is also paragliding available in the park. You need to rent a taxi or a car as we were told by friends there is no public transportation that goes to... More

If you make it to Niteori, don't miss the views from Parque de Cidade,and be sure to watch the parachutes launch off the cliff. One of the highlights of my trip to Rio!

Niteroi is another city, but it is from there where you can face the best view of Rio de Janeiro. Its a little bit fair (1 hour average by car), but totally worths.
