Brazil's Rio de Janeiro is one of the most exciting and most visited cities in the world. Here we discover why with aerial and down-to-earth views of this popular destination. Here we see the Christo Redentor, Rio's most famous landmark, which is a statue of Christ with outstretched arms atop Corcovado Mountain. On Sugar Loaf Mountain we get a 360-degree view of the city and Guanabara Bay, where Portuguese people originally arrived here in the 16th century. Next we explore two of the world's most famous beaches, Copacabana and Ipanema; then we discover that sheer peace and beauty can be found at the Roberto Burle Marx Gardens, a 100-acre botanical gardens purchased by the famous landscape architect to store his personal collection of plants. Lastly, we experience Carnival, the world's most spectacular annual cultural pageant, which is a four-day holiday held just before Lent.
