My first tuna in Rio for leisure couldn't start better with the breakfast at Parque Lage. Surrounded by nature, this historical place has a very good breakfast service. We have chosen the plage completo - breads, butter, jelly, yogurt, fruits, scrambled eggs. It's a very good size so it might serve 2 people. Besides you may order a cappuccino and... More

Dramatic almost theatrical building amongst the 'jungle' with a rich history provided by previous owners. Worth a visit.

We loved the Parque Lage, it was beautiful, tranquil and very relaxingto walk around. Additionally, near the Parque is this awesome coffee shop that is part of an art institute that I would suggest going there for breakfast. You get hearty pastries, a beautiful view and awesome coffee (you get awesome coffee all over Brazil but this setting was so... More

In the heart of the city, you can have a walk in this small but beautiful park. It was a very relaxing and nice experience.

I'm sure this will be a much better experience if you don't go during the Olympics when Team GB have taken over the mansion & restricted access to the public. The park was nice, but it looked to be the most interesting thing in the park.

There's not much to see here but the setting is beautiful, right on the edge of the botanical gardens. The lovely Italian-style villa was used as 'British House' during the Olympics but when I went, it wasn't in a great state. The bathrooms were filthy and the pool looked grubby. Such a shame, it could be so perfect!

Follow the steep path up to Cristo for an adventure that you won't forget! Takes about 2 - 3 hours going steadily. Sure, some people run but...! Wear proper trainers or shoes and take water, pause to see the monkeys and to hear the birds - and no traffic! The slight culture shock at reaching the top (where there are... More

Man I am so glad I stumbled into here. This park feels like you are walking through the ruins of an ancient civilization, with really well cultivated jungle growing up around gorgeous beaux-arts buildings. Definitely spend a few ours strolling around here (perhaps after visiting the Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas?) and if you can be sure to hike up to... More

An old colonial-style villa and small but beatiful garden. There are also commanding views of the Christ the Redemptor. What's not too like.

The Parque Lage is a very beautiful park to chill, walk or make a picnic. It's not big and great photos are guaranteed!
