Why locals love it

Preserved Architecture from Colonial Days. Fabulous Cafés. Great Restaurants. Overall, a lovely place to spend the entire afternoon combing the back streets, stopping for a beer and enjoying conversation with locals along the famous bay facing rock wall.

Why you should visit it

The neighborhood of Urca is a bit off the tourist trail, but rich in history. It feels like a quintessential South American town. It event boasts the oldest street in Rio and was where Carmen Miranda was first scouted for American Pictures.

Special tip

Stop in the Italian Café inside the former Casino.
