About
Visit Brazil's Imperial City on this private, full-day tour to Petropolis, leaving from Rio de Janeiro. History is everywhere in this tropical mountain town — with palaces and churches dating back to Portuguese colonial times. Tour the city's most famous places, including the Quitandinha Palace, the Imperial Museum, Crystal Palace, the curious House of 7 Errors and more. Wander the charming old streets, dotted with old-fashioned European-style houses. Top the day off with a visit the first brewery in Brazil, founded by German immigrants. See things at your own pace with your private guide. Roundtrip transportation is included.
