Once you arrive back at port, head to lunch at a Brazilian churrascaria for a meal of traditional barbecue.
Following lunch, drive up the Tijuca National Park to visit the the Corcovado Mountain and the majestic Christ the Redeemer statue at its peak. The iconic sculpture overlooks the city in a panorama that stretches all aroung the city as well as the neighbouring city of Niteroi.
After spending some time catching the best views of teh city, continue on to the amazing Selaron Steps. This brilliant work of art features more than 2,000 tiles from 60 countries. Marvel at the 215 steps and take the most colorful pictures on your trip before continuing on your tour.
Your last stop of the day is at Sugarloaf Mountain. Drive to its base and climb aboard a cable car that takes you first to the neighboring Urca Hill. Here, enjoy views from a vantage of 705 feet (215 m) before riding the rest of the way up to Sugarloaf's peak. Standing at 1,299 feet (396 m) over the city, relish breathtaking vistas of the region as the sun begins to set. Head back to your hotel as dusk settles over the city.
