Private tour in Rio de Janeiro

Petropolis is a very famous landmark and tourist attraction in Brazil. It is also called as the “Imperial City”. It is situated not far from Rio de Janeiro; it will take you no more than 20 minutes to get there. Petropolis is located among the forested hills of the Serra dos Orgaos. The city is rich in tourist attractions and interesting sites, which represent the grandeur of the Brazilian culture and history.

We may take a look at the former Palace of the Emperor, where Dom Pedro the 2nd lived. Currently it is an Imperial Museum, where you can enjoy the view of beautiful antique furniture, tapestries, and jewelry which bear an imprint of a fabulous luxury world of a royal family. Among all these treasures you will find some of the personal belongings of the Emperor Dom Pedro – his scepter, crown, royal jewels and numerous works of art. It is worth noting that Rio is becoming more and more popular among tourists; that’s why the service of private tour guides in Rio de Janeiro is in demand.

There is another famous landmark in Petropolis – San Pedro de Alcantara, the famous Gothic Cathedral. It was built at the end of the 19th century and it is a place where the members of the imperial family are buried. In 1946 the Quitandinha Palace Hotel was opened. It was a very luxurious casino and hotel till there appeared the law which banned gambling.
