Rio de Janeiro is set in one of the most beautiful landscapes in the world, so much so that the harbour area is considered to be one of the Seven Wonders of the Natural World. Add to that the inclusion of the statue of Christ the Redeemer on the list of Modern Wonders of the World and you have a very special city.

A hire car is the best way of getting to some of the areas from which you can see the splendour of the city from above; the Sugarloaf Mountain, Corcovado Peak and the hills of Tijuca.
