O Rio e a cidade mais bonita do mundo!Aqui o Criador caprichou: fez uma paisagem encantadora, onde as praias abracam calorosamente as montanhas. Temperou com feijoada, caipirinha, cerveja e alta gastronomia. Adicionou samba e chorinho. O Rio e a vitrine de tudo que acontece no Brasil.Venha comigo conhecer tudo isso, aproveitando ao maximo a Cidade Maravilhosa e seus arredores.
