Rio by Lapa

Private tour in Rio de Janeiro

Tour Price : Us$ 270 Duration : 4-5 hour Languages: English, Spanish, Italian, German

Lapa is a certain neighborhood, or barrio as the Brazilians say, in the marvelous city of Rio de Janeiro. It is situated at the very heart of Rio and it is distinguished by its active nightlife and famous historical monuments. It is worth noting that Lapa plays a considerable role in the rich and glorious history of Rio de Janeiro.

All over the neighborhood we can see the very first constructions, which served as dwellings and various other buildings for the Portuguese inhabitants of Rio de Janeiro. All the houses were built in the colonial style, and were no higher that 2 stores. After some years this area became abandoned, until other inhabitants came and replaced the old buildings with the new ones. Fortunately Lapa was rediscovered during the last past years.

There has been a successful attempt to restore the Bohemian part of Rio with its unique authentic atmosphere. Any person who visits Lapa should take into consideration that this place represents numerous historical sites and tourist attractions, so in order to not to get lost in all that variety it is advisable to use the service of a private guide in Brazil. Nowadays Lapa is mostly known for its local music and dances. Among the most favorite styles of the locals are chorinho, partido alto, bossa nova.

Guided tours in Rio de Janeiro are of great interest for tourists, as far as they allow sensing the special atmosphere of the place and get acquainted with its unique culture.
