Petropolis - the Imperial city

Culture and History tour in Rio de Janeiro

Tour Price : Us$ 380 Duration : 8-9 hour Languages: English, Spanish, Italian, German

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. You should take into consideration that Brazil and namely Rio de Janeiro is literally filled with different historical sites and places of interest, so it is advisable to use the service of a private guide in Brazil.

There are plenty of other tourist attractions in Petropolis, such as the Crystal palace. It was a place where lots of Europeans immigrated due to the cool climate and rich history of the town. This is how some German features in architecture and cuisine mingled with the Brazilian ones. Guided tours in Rio de Janeiro are more preferable than the common ones, as far as the guide will show you only the most worthy historical sites and places of interest.
