Kindly called “The Smile City”, Niteroi was the capital of the State of Rio de Janeiro until 1975. A charming city, located just on the other side of the Guanabara Bay, we will reach the city driving on the Rio-Niteroi Bridge, the longest in Brazil (13 km).

There is plenty to explore in Niteroi. From its oceanic beaches, its Forts, its typical restaurants by the sea and the Oscar Niemeyer architecture complex. Did you know that after Brasília Niterói is the second city in Brazil with more buildings designed by the world famous architect Oscar Niemeyer?

We will start exploring the Niemeyer’s Path (Caminho Niemeyer) covering some of his works, such as: the Popular Theater, the Roberto Silveira Memorial, Oscar Niemeyer Foundation, the New Cathedral of São João Batista (still under construction), the famous Museum of Contemporary Art (MAC).

One of the highest point of the Tour is the Park of the City - included in an environmental protected area (APA). The Park is most visited by hang-gliding and paragliding lovers and from there we will appreciate a breath-taking view from Niteroi, and especially from Rio de Janeiro.

The duration of the tour is from 6 to 7 hours approximately.
