Park
“Starting on Pista Cláudio Coutinho, in Urca neighborhood, there is a 20-minute trail that goes up the hill through the forest. From there you can see stunning views of the ocean and mountains and appreciate Brazilian flora and fauna (including monkeys). A place highly recommended for watching the sunset. Stop at bar da Urca for a beer afterwards.”

“For over a century, Cavé pastry shop has been a must-go place during a visit to Rio Downtwn. Getting inside is a journey to the past to relive a little bit of the Ancient Rio. First pastry shop in town, it was founded in March 1860 by Charles Auguste Cavé, a French man who led the business through 1922. It was later taken by Portuguese associates who brought to the menu dishes which still can be found there, such as the famous Pastel de Belém (Portuguese custard tarts), toucinho do céu (Portuguese almond cake), and dom Rodrigo, which is made with egg threads and cinnamon.”
