Vidigal and Dois Irmãos
The best RioLive! I did! Something a lot of tourists in Rio don´t know about or don´t have time for and the views are absolutely stunning! It was a great chance to walk through a favela and see what it´s like – something everyone wants to experience when in Rio. The trail up Os Dois Irmaos was challenging but worth every effort with the views at the top, which I think rivalled the views from both the Cristo and the Pao de Acucar!!

In our last RioLIVE! we took a beautiful afternoon in Rio de Janeiro to make the hiking of Vidigal and Morro Dois Irmãos , which is one of the most beautiful places in Rio and it allows people to have a different view of Cristo Redentor, Pão de Açúcar, Pedra da Gávea, Lagoa, the beaches of Ipanema and Vidigal.
Our Portuguese students started this RioLIVE! making a nice walk at the community of Vidigal, it was very interesting because the students could see the place inside and see a little bit of some cariocas’ day by day living.
When we reached the track, it was a big challenge to go up, because besides the hot weather, the way up is very intense. But it didn’t influence our joy of knowing this place. In the end, all the effort was worthwhile, because the view of the top of the mountain is amazing!
