Tour Overview

Discover the charming Santa Teresa neighborhood, which has a completely different vibe than the rest of Rio. View local artists at work creating art and honing their craft. Then you'll visit the Parque das Ruinas (Ruins Park), where you'll see one of the most beautiful views of Rio's lesser-known side, its tradition, architecture, lifestyle, street art, and bohemian atmosphere at night.

Walk down the famous ceramic Selaron stairway steps to reach Lapa, designed by Chilean Jorge Selarón, and learn more about the ceramic pieces that were placed on top of the paintings done by locals who were decorating the stairs in support of the National Soccer Team in the 1994 World Cup, which Brazil won.
