Early this morning we will head to Corcovado for a half-day guided tour. The statue of Christ the Redeemer is one of the most iconic sights of Rio and if the weather is clear there is a fantastic view over the rest of the city including the Sugar Loaf mountain. In the afternoon we will take a tour learning about the roots of samba and the history of Carnival.
