The Michelin Green Guide is the authority on Rio de Janeiro today and the forces of nature and society that have shaped it. Major sights include Sugarloaf, Corcovado and Christ the Redeemer statue, Tijuca National Park, Copacabana and Ipanema beaches, the Botanical Gardens, the Imperial Palace in Petropolis, the World Heritage site of Paraty and much more. Divided into neighborhoods, the guide introduces you to the best of what to see and do, from vibrant Lapa nightlife, to colonial historic center architecture and sweeping southern beaches, as well as comprehensive and detailed coverage of excursions to beach resorts, historic towns and lush green countryside nearby. Special features delve into the nature of modern Rio, including its economy, local traditions, culture and amazing cuisine, as well as Rio s rich architectural traditions, vibrant arts scene and internationally renowned, greatest-party-on-earth, Rio de Janeiro Carnival. The Your Stay in the City section covers everything from Brazilian churrasco (barbecue) to feijoda (pork and black bean stew) and the glorious Copacabana Palace hotel. Also in this section are entertainment venues, so you know where to find the best caipirinha in town, shopping destinations for authentic crafts or carnival costumes and spectator sports information, including the famous Maracana stadium. In-depth and authoritative history explores the city s heritage, from the original Amerindian inhabitants, to the discovery of Brazil by Europeans and the subsequent colonization and arrival of the Portuguese royal family, the fortunes of trade and war, its years of dictatorship and today s modern democracy."
