Meeting 15:00h at Rio & Learn
Costs: R$6,00 (Entrance fee)
Guanabara Bay has a few different military points that years ago were used for safety. One of them is Forte de Copacabana. Forte de Copacabana is more than just a military base! It sits at the south end of the beach that defines the district of Copacabana, Rio de Janeiro and provides us with amazing views. From there you can see all of the beach of Copacabana, Forte do Leme, the Sugar Loaf and even the city of Niterói. If you are interested in history, the base is open to the public and contains the Museu Histórico do Exército (Museum of Army History), but if relaxing is what you are looking for, then you should definitely grab a bite and perhaps a drink at the new confectionery that Confeitaria Colombo opened there, you’ll be right next to the sea.
On this RioLIVE! Activity we will take a nice walk around the fort where we can enjoy history, the beautiful Guanabara Bay views, take amazing pictures together as well as speak Portuguese. We will hear some interesting stories about the place as we explore all of its surroundings.

Since it is located at the very edge of both neighborhoods, we will be presented with breathtaking views of Praia do Diabo, Ipanema, Copacabana, th
