Hotel Villa Tijuca

In Rio de Janeiro, most of the hotels are concentrated in the South Zone. Nevertheless, at Hotel Villa Tijuca we are located on a more traditional neighborhood so that visitors get to know the authentic local culture and can discover every corner of this huge city.

Staying in the North Zone is a unique experience, since it offers all the charm of a noble and residential district considered as the gastronomic and entertainment center, surrounded by bars, restaurants and shops. Barra da Tijuca is also one of the areas of greatest growth and cultural effervescence, where many commercial areas, luxurious urbanizations and large technology companies have been developed in recent years.

The privileged location of Hotel Villa Tijuca, with excellent communications and next to the metro station Afonso Pena, will allow you to know both the urban center of Rio de Janeiro, just 5 kilometers away, and the main tourist attractions among which are Tijuca Forest National Park, the statue of Christ the Redeemer and the Maracanã Stadium.
Tijuca Forest National Park and Christ the Redeemer
The national park from which the Hotel Villa Tijuca takes its name is the largest urban forest in the world and a natural paradise that covers an area of ​​almost 4 hectares. Within the park, which has also been declared a Biosphere Reserve by Unesco, are the Pedra da Gávea, the Corcovado hill and the Tijuca peak, as well as the emblematic Christ the Redeemer statue, the most characteristic monument of Rio de Janeiro and one of the seven wonders of the modern world.
Maracanã Stadium
Only 10 minutes by car from Hotel Villa Tijuca and less than 20 minutes by metro, you can find the largest stadium in Brazil. The soccer temple of Maracanã was inaugurated in 1950 and since then it has hosted two FIFA World Cups, as well as hosting numerous concerts and the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2016 Olympic Games.
Sambadrome
One of the most identifying elements of Brazilian culture is the samba. This cheerful and rhythmic dance is a show that cannot be missed during your visit to Rio de Janeiro.
The Marquês de Sapucaí Sambadrome, the only one in the city, hosts many celebrations and demonstrations, especially during the famous carnivals.
This open-air stage was designed by the renowned architect Oscar Niemeyer and is divided into several tiers, separated by a path where the samba schools and their floats parade.
You can also enjoy the samba at the City of Samba art and entertainment complex, located in the port area.
Beaches
In any visit to Rio de Janeiro you must include at least its two most famous beaches: Copacabana and Ipanema.
The Copacabana beach is located in one of the most bohemian neighborhoods, with a large number of restaurants, artistic events, theaters, shops and also synagogues, since it was traditionally the neighborhood of the Carioca Jews. The beach is also framed by the famous calçadao, a colorful cobblestone path that connects with Ipanema.
This second beach, located in the most luxurious neighborhood and one of the most expensive in Latin America, is also a great reference in Brazilian sun and sand tourism.
Among the multiple positions of Ipanema there are ambiances for all tastes, from surfers to families.
Sugarloaf Mountain
The Sugarloaf Mountain and Urca Hill Natural Monument is one of the most visited points of Brazil. This hill located in the Guanabara Bay rises over the Atlantic Ocean reaching up to 400 meters at its highest point, and thus offering stunning panoramic views over Rio de Janeiro and its beaches.
It can be accessed through the famous bondinhos or cable cars, which crosses the city by air creating one of the most typical postcards of Rio de Janeiro.
