          Ipanema is considered Rio's crown jewel. It offers the
          best view of the sunset from Arpoador and is
          inspiration for the legendary song, “The Girl from
          Ipanema.” Ipanema is an upscale area, home to many
          high-end restaurants and luxury shops, many of which
          can be found on the charming Garcia d'Ávila Avenue.
          The neighbourhood is very rich culturally, housing
          many art galleries that show contemporary art. There
