What a historical place! High ceilings and gigantic mirrors with grand decorations. We had lunch here and finished with a coffee. Decent prizes and a great historical atmosphere. This place is a "must do" when visiting Rio Centro.

Confeitaria Colombo is one of the finest bakeries in Rio. The decor and 124 year’s history set the scene for a good meal. Highly recommend the pastries and savoury snacks such as coxinha de frango.

I guess this is a place on many people’s bucket list. The room is just remarkable - the coffee and service nothing special.

Downtown Rio is the place where this city was born.
With modern skyscrapers sharing space with historical
buildings and landmarks, this neighbourhood is living
proof that the old and the new can live together
harmoniously. As you would expect, downtown is where
all major companies house their offices. However, the
region isn’t restricted to businesses. Gems such like
