Relax in Beautiful Tranquility

Parque Lage is set among some of Rio’s most beautiful natural areas, away from the hustle and bustle of the busy city. It’s the perfect place to take a break if your holiday has been go go go so far, but there’s plenty to see so you won’t be bored. English-style gardens and man-made lakes make up the majority of the well-groomed grounds. Keep an eye on the surrounding rainforest–you might spot a monkey or a toucan, if you’re lucky! The sounds of the rainforest float in on the breeze and mingle with the sounds of the park itself, making this a wonderful place to take a much-needed break in peace.

Visit the Escola de Artes Visuais

The school of visual art is situated in the park, and often hosts free art exhibitions and sometimes hosts performances of various kinds. There’s even a café there that makes a perfect place to sit back, relax, and people-watch while enjoying a coffee or a meal.
