Highlights of Petropolis

Our tour offers the opportunity to visit one of the most beautiful cities in Brazil: the city of Petrópolis. It is known as the Imperial City, because in the monarchic era of Brazil it was chosen to be the summer residence of the Emperor of Brazil, Dom Pedro II.

This tour invites us to enjoy the architecture of the city, while we learn more about the culture and history of imperial Brazil. We will visit the Imperial Museum, the Crystal Palace, the Gothic Cathedral of São Pedro de Alcântara and the former residence of Santos Dumont.

Details of Day Tours

We start with the departure from the passenger hotels in the city of Rio de Janeiro to begin our journey to the imperial city of Petrópolis, which is located in the mountainous part of the state, one hour away. 

We will visit the Imperial Museum, where passengers will find a variety of historical pieces and documents of great importance to the country's history, such as the emperor's scepter and crown, imperial jewels and works of art that belonged to the royal family.

We will also visit the Crystal Palace, built in France, in a pre-assembled iron structure, by order of Count D'Eu and Princess Elizabeth. Today it is used for concerts and plays.

We will continue to the Cathedral of San Pedro de Alcantara, of French neo-gothic style and built around 1884. There lie the remains of Don Pedro II, Doña Teresa Cristina, Conde D'Eu and Princess Isabel. 

Then, we will visit the former residence of Santos Dumont, a famous Brazilian aviator. During the tour, there will be a stop for lunch at one of the city's restaurants of choice (not included).

Finally, we return to the hotels in Rio de Janeiro, where the tour ends.
