|Day of the week||Opening hour||Closing hour|
In this RioLIVE! Activity we will have a carioca-like afternoon, since it is a common activity for people to leave work and meet in the Confectionery, or at other establishment like Colombo bakery, to talk. As we said before, don’t eat too much at lunch and leave some room in your stomach to try the best sweets in Rio de Janeiro while practicing your Portuguese because there will be a lot of conversing.
