Your day begins in Urca, a true gem of a district which can only be discovered little by little. It’s brimming with quaint old residencies and not too many commercial establishments. Head for the Sugarloaf cable car, the first transport of its type to be built in Brazil – and the third in the world! The cable car ride to the top of the hill has two parts: the first ride takes you from the Boarding Station up 224 metres to the Urca Hill, a smaller mount that precedes the Sugarloaf. From there, hop onto a second cable car that will whizz you up to the top of Sugarloaf Mountain, the best vantage point of Rio de Janeiro.

After catching your breath, descend into the city you have just contemplated from above and head for the downtown.
