Meeting 14:30h at Rio & Learn
Costs: 74 reais + 3,80 reais (ticket + bus)
Rio de Janeiro’s most famous tourist attraction is Christ the Redeemer. Nobody who visits the city can miss it. Bring your camera to take some of the best pictures of Rio de Janeiro from the top of Corcovado. We are going up and down with the Trem do Corcovado, a historical train that takes you to the top Corcovado. The railway was opened in 1884, but the trains are much newer =]. Our teacher will explain to you some of the stories around the city and the Cristo as you practice your Portuguese and enjoy the moment.
The history around Cristo is a big mystery, some people say that it was a present for Brazil from France, since the statue was built by the French artist Paul Landowski, with the help Brazilian engineers and a Romanian artist, but many people also say that the statue was built because of the money donated by people from all all over the country. The fact is, it is really a present for the cariocas, and also for foreigners who come to visit Rio de Janeiro and make the visit to Cristo Redentor a must. Feel like joining us? Grab you camera, sunscreen, sunglasses and lets go! This RioLIVE! Activity will show you views you will never forget, and all with the nice company of your fellow students! Let’s practice our Portuguese, learn new things and make new friends!!!
Come with us in our RioLIVE! Activity and live this amazing experience.
