We begin our tour in front of Copacabana Palace Hotel at 10:00 and from there we take the metro to Glória, where we see our first street art work: the famous Selaron Lapa Steps, built by one man with thousands of tiles from all over the world. We move on to Cinelândia and We get the tram to Praça Mauá.
The square marks the beginning of Avenida Rio Branco avenue and also of the Port Region, in the Central area of Rio. Around the square there are important buildings, such as the Rio Art Museum (MAR) and the Museum of Tomorrow.
From there, we walk by the Olimpic Boulevard to see all the new different art works in the area, includind the very large (it’s in the Guiness Book of Records!) 3,000 square meters ‘Etnias’ mural.
Finally, we go to the Pedra do Sal. Originally a slave village, Pedra do Sal is a place with special significance for Cariocas of African descent and fans of samba and choro music. It’s a culturally rich area, full of art, definetelly worth a visit and stoping for a cold beer!
