Rio Airport.(GIG)

My daughter and her husband have a 7 hour stop-over in Rio after doing a mini-tour of Brazil.Any ideas what they could do in that time?

The Airport is about 45 to 1 hour from Copacabana, so you have to calculate the time, but you could go to Corcobado, or to the Sugar Loaf, or going to downtown to see the Sambodromo, the Maracana, the Cathedral, in the Airport the taxi companies can give you the tour, you only have to ask them.

there is heavy traffic on rush hour weekdays. be careful about that. best option (if not during rush hour) would be Corcovado mountain to get a wonderful view of the city (go by taxi).
