Rio de Janeiro attracts visitors from around the globe with its beaches, the tropical climate and the exceptional urban setting. The Brazilian modernity, in architecture led by Oscar Niemeyer, gained great recognition worldwide. Many of the modern buildings by Lucio Costa, Affonso Reidy and the brothers Roberto are architectural icons, well worth a visit even today.

The latest architectural highlights were created in sight of the Soccer World Cup in 2014 and the Olympic Games 2016. The Museum of Tomorrow by Santiago Calatrava and the Art Museum of Rio de Janeiro MAR by Bernardes Jacobsen Architects are part of an urban development plan to convert the former industrial port area into a new center of living, working and culture.
Rio de Janeiro offers numerous architectural monuments and a complex urban history you can discover in our five Ready-to-Book Tours in Rio, and tours in combination with other Brazilian cities.
