Why visit Niterói City?
Although Copacabana and Ipanema are the most famous beaches in Rio de Janeiro, this trip to Niterói takes you to equally spectacular (but more secret) beaches. People come here to relax in the sun, and enjoy the ocean and its amazing views. Additionally, the city has one of the highest Human Development Index (HDI) scores of Brazil. It is also known by its nicknames, Smile-City and Nikiti.
What about crossing the Guanabara Bay by ferry, and enjoy the views of Rio while you reach Niterói? That’s what we will do in this RioLIVE Weekend! Afterwards we’ll have nice walk across Niemeyer’s Path by the shore until we reach one of our stops: the famous Museum of Contemporary Art (MAC). The best part is that this activity is a mix of nature and culture: the perfect balance! We will continue this tour with a visit to Itacoatiara, one Niterói City’s most beautiful beaches. There, we will walk the Costão trail, but what if you all feel hungry? Don’t worry, we got you! You can enjoy a traditional cold mate combo + Sanduíche do Marcelo (Marcelo’s sandwich).
And the best way to finish this amazing day is to enjoy a beautiful and amazing sunset, right? So our last stop is at Parque da Cidade where many people go to watch the sun set behind the Wonderful City! The Niterói tour is an unforgettable experience that you simply cannot miss!
