Downtown Rio is the place where this city was born.
With modern skyscrapers sharing space with historical

Between 89 and 150 brl. Important to notice that this includes at least three courses of meals. Usually entrance, main dish and dessert. I would recommend also a bottle of wine (very good selection as well)
