This is a "must-do" while in Rio. Make sure to get there early for tours. We arrived at 10:30 A.M., but couldn't get on a tour until 1 P.M. The theater was recently renovated and is absolutely stunning. More impressive than the Teatro Colon in Buenos Aires. Very inexpensive (about $10 USD) and very, very worth it.

We went out a tour of the museum which costs 10 reais and lasts about an hour. The museum is absolutely beautiful inside and outside, I would loved to have gone to see a performance too.
We turned up about 11am and managed to get out the 2pm tour.

Many people these days don't know that Rio was once known as the "Paris of Latin America". This was until the 1950/60s when all the beautiful old architecture was bulldozed to build awful skyscrapers. If you are still willing to hunt and seek, however, you can find the gems.

Amazing! Going inside is like traveling in time! From outside is beautiful too. But if you are going as a tourist to downtown Rio... maybe is better to go during the weekend. It is too crowded during week days!
