Tours and Tickets
Downtown Rio is the place where this city was born. With modern skyscrapers sharing space with historical buildings and landmarks, this neighbourhood is living proof that the old and the new can live together harmoniously. As you would expect, downtown is where all major companies house their offices. However, the region isn’t restricted to businesses. Gems such like the “Paço Imperial,” which is a cultural centre that used to serve as a residence for governors of Brazil, can be found here. Pedra do Sal, a Monday night street party, is also in this neighbourhood. This landmark is the birthplace of samba and is famous for its “roda de sambas” (“dance circles”). Stop in for one and get closer to discovering where Brazilian happiness comes from.

Great to stop in, wish we could have seen a concert here
Stopped in here walking from the Escalaria Selaron to the Cathedral. Highly recommend making a stop in to look around while you are in Lapa. Very cool space, very welcoming, and we saw a cool exhibit about the development of Rio from the 18th century to now. It was day time so not much more to do than walk around, but they have concerts and theater here - would have definitely come for that if we had time.

Comprei um ingresso mas só tinha na pista lt2... é um bom lugar?É que nunca fui lá e não gostaria de ficar em pé o tempo todo mas não encontrei nenhuma outra opção de compra obrigada
Boa tarde. Fiquei no back stage, bem atras do dj, nao conheco esse outro. Espero que se divirta.
Nas redondezas, Chegar e depois na saída (de madrugada) é muito perigoso?
A Lapa é bem movimentada, mas precisa ficar atenta porque tem muitos pivetes próximo ao arco, não pode dar mole com celular, bolsas ou andar sozinha.
Dá para uma gravidinha de 6 meses curtir o show do Rappa, pista?
Olá, Natália. Tudo bem? Aproveitando a resposta do Fabricio...o show do Rappa é um evento de multidão. Não aconselhamos você a ficar na pista bem em frente ao palco. Temos os degraus e a arquibancada. Para esse show, teremos a frisa, esse espaço fica nas laterais do terceiro nível da casa. Está a venda também pelo site. Lembramos que, a casa é bem estruturada. Temos alguns espaços amplos para sentar fora da área do palco. Você conhece a Fundição?
