Rio de Janeiro has 40 kilometers of beach running from Leme to Pontal, mountains crowned with monuments such as the Pão de Açucar (Sugar Loaf) and Cristo Redentor (Christ the Redeemer), along with the large public leisure areas. These post card views are the most obvious of Rio´s attractions but the city can also offer a variety of gastronomic options, cultural programs, historic places, entertainment and commercial choices. The following tips aim to make all these attraction available to the visitor and range from tourist excursions to practical suggestions on where to get a good bite to eat and a cold beer near the Maracanã stadium where the historic World Cup final was held in 1950. The stadium has been totally reformed and will be the setting for seven games in 2014 – including the final on July 13. By that date, an estimated 700,000 tourists are expected to visit the city during the competition and will find certainly plenty to keep themselves amused.
