Brief

From baroque structures to the wide-open arms of the Redeemer, from the crashing waters of Iguacu to the heights of Sugarloaf, don’t miss this opportunity to explore all that Classic Brazil has to offer! This trip starts at the historic beachside city of Salvador and then joins you as you fly to the massive falls of Foz do Iguacu. Then, soar to Rio de Janeiro where it feels like your feet will never touch the ground again, between the helicopter flights, the mountain climbs, and the nightclubs where you can dance until the sun rises.

Day 1

Welcome to Brazil! A guide will transfer you upon your arrival at the Salvador International Airport, where you will be transferred to the hotel for your check-in at 14:00.

Many districts make up the Center, the historic heart of which is Pelourinho, whose structures retain a style and flavor dating back to the 16thC, such as the Cathedral Basilica, a masterpiece of 17th century colonial baroque.  You will also visit the Sao Francisco Church and Convent, another important repository of 17thC baroque art with gorgeous gilded interiors. Additionally, you have the option of attending the folk show at the Miguel Santana Theater (not included) before your overnight stay at the hotel.
