Rio De Janeiro: Downtown Sites and Bites Walking Tour
- Discover the renovated harbor area and its highlights such as Kobra’s graffiti mural and Museum of Tomorrow
- Try delicious local food as you stroll around Orla Conde
- Ride the new eco-friendly tram of Rio
- Visit the city’s oldest bakery and treat yourself to the best pastries in town
Get off the tram right by the impressive and colorful graffiti mural designed by Eduardo Kobra. His work features the indigenous people of five continents and covers over 2,600 square metres of the building. From there, head from the boulevard down to the Museum of Tomorrow, another impressive work that’s great for snapping a few photos with Guanabara Bay in the background. You’ll then connect from this renovated area to the old district of the city via a new pathway along the bay.
Moving along the old streets of Rio de Janeiro’s downtown, reach the first bakery of Rio. This traditional spot dates back to 1894 and has kept all of its original enchantment. As you enjoy the fancy architecture, treat yourself to some of the yummiest desserts in town. After this sugar rush, walk to Carioca Square to take the subway back to Copacabana. Feeling like you have some more adventure in you? Then incorporate this tour with your afternoon Sugarloaf Mountain and Urca Discovery tour.
