this is the Avenue opposite Copacabana. Many outdoor restaurants and the walkway for its rich (and mainly older) residents. Half of it is closed on Sundays, a welcome move by city planners. Safe and to be enjoyed.

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
