...this is a must see. The house full of lovingly collected treasures has only been open to public visits for 2 years. A well informed member of staff takes each visitor on a private tour of Eva Klabin's house. Each room has a different theme. There's a renaissance hall with Italian paintings and artefacts, an English sitting room where Klabin... More

at the recommendation of a friend I went to this formerly private house, turned museum, and was very impressed. I was the only visitor and for 10 BR I got a private tour for over an hour. I loved all the details and the very eclectic taste of the founder. The place is pretty much the way she left it... More

Staying in Copacabana

Neighbourhood Profile
The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional and old areas from Rio de Janeiro. This neighbourhood is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit of everything: bars with music, pubs, street fairs, chaotic streets, and many shops. All these things and more live side-by-side. There are options for all price points and tastes. However, the most powerful draw in Copacabana is still the fantastic view of the coast and the incredible beaches.
