Expectations were high. Disappointment even bigger. Location was nice but an absolute bore. Don't spend more than an hour here

Urca is one of the oldest areas in Rio. Known for its
incredible views of the city, the neighbourhood runs
along Guanabara bay, providing visitors with an
opportunity to watch the sunset from one of Rio’s
greatest natural treasures: Sugarloaf Mountain (Pao de
Acucar). It is said that the locals in Urca are “bon
