Visit Copacabana Beach

The beach stretches 2.5 miles (4km) and has historic forts at either end. Fort Duque de Caxias, built in 1779, is found at the north end of the beach with Fort Copacabana, built in 1914, being found at the south end. You will find restaurants, bars and nightclubs dotted along the famous Copacabana promenade.
Perhaps you will return to Rio for the epic New Year celebrations that see an estimated two million people head to Copacabana Beach to watch the spectacular firework display that often last 20-minutes.

Christ the Redeemer is listed as one of the new seven wonders of the world and if you head to this amazing feat of engineering, you will easily see why.

Have a Tour of Brazil’s Most Famous Football Stadium
It is practically impossible to not think of football, soccer to you folks across the pond, when you think of Brazil. The Brazilian national team has been crowned World Cup champions a record five times and are the only nation to have competed at every World Cup since its inception in 1930.
The Maracana Stadium is the home to both Flamengo and Fluminese. With a capacity of 78,838, the Maracana is the biggest sports stadium in Brazil. A staggering 199,854 football fans crammed inside the stadium at the 1950 World Cup and it has attendances of more than 100,000 on 286 occasions!
Tours of the iconic Maracana Stadium are available and definitely worth embarking on if you are a football fan.
Take a Glass-Walled Cable Car up Sugarloaf Mountain
Sugarloaf Mountain stands 396 meters above the harbour in Rio de Janiero and it takes two cable cars to reach its summit. Glass-walled cable cars travel up the mountain, giving you spectacular views of the beautiful city below.
James Bond fans among you will remember the villainous henchman Jaws biting through the cable at Sugarloaf Mountain in the film Moonraker, while those of you who have played Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will have seen the mountain on the Favela map.
