Petrópolis, known as The Imperial City, is located one hour from Rio de Janeiro. However, it is enough to feel that you are in a completely different place. With a climate mountain town, buildings from the Colonial period of Brazil and mild temperatures, the city appeals to locals and tourists around the world.

The tour begins on the road, which some stops are great to enjoy the lovely views of the Rainforest and the Rio de Janeiro city.

Before the Historical Center, we pass through the Quitandinha Palace, a beautiful German construction style.

The visit to the Imperial Museum, summer residence of the Portuguese royal family during the 19th century, is amazing and makes you travel in time. At the Museum there are preserved objects and furniture of that time and the Crown of Dom Pedro II, weighing 17 pounds of gold, with over 600 diamonds.

During the lunch stop you can visit Santos Dumont’s house if you want. It is not included on the tour but there is enough time for that.

After lunch, the tour continues to Cathedral of Dom Pedro de Alcântara and the Crystal Palace.

The tour is available only on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

    I was able to see all the most important sights of the city ! It was a great tour, loved the museum and it's history. Nice opportunity to see a different side of Rio. The tour guide's English could be better and also the lunch wasn't my favorite while in Brazil. But in general I had an amazing time.
