Rio de Janeiro

Rio de Janeiro, affectionately known as Cidade Maravilhosa (The Marvelous City), is the pulsating heart of Brazil. It’s famous for its iconic Christ the Redeemer statue, stunning beaches like Copacabana and Ipanema, and the exuberant Rio Carnival. The city is a blend of natural beauty, urban charm, and cultural vibrancy.

São Paulo

São Paulo, the largest city in Brazil, is a melting pot of cultures and arguably the country’s most cosmopolitan city. The city is famous for its diverse culinary scene with everything from street food to Michelin-starred restaurants. And don’t miss a visit to the São Paulo Museum of Art (MASP).


Salvador, the capital of Bahia state, is a city where African and Brazilian cultures meet. The Pelourinho district of Salvador is a UNESCO World Heritage site with colorful colonial buildings and cobblestone streets you won’t want to miss. It is a distinctly different experience from the rest of Brazil and worth the visit.
