This quaint bohemian neighborhood of Rio with colonial buildings and cobblestone streets steep on a hillside overlooking the city is earning the interest of tourists wishing to see an alternate Rio away from the beach scene. Art galleries and...more
charming, character area, with many old houses - a taste of old Rio.Just be a little careful, and mindful of who is around you, it's not exactly a very safe area (probably best not to go there alone), and on the bondinho up there kids...More
We took the tram to this cute little neighborhood. The views from the tram were great too. The breeze we got, the gentle hum and little bumps almost put us to sleep! The tram station is close to Cinelanda Square
Lots of artsy shops, food...More
We went here during the day (late morning) and frankly it was dead. Apparently a chic bohemian area, but not what we saw. Presumably the beautiful people come out at night, but during the day I would have happily missed it.
We spent over £100 on a private tour in open jeep, to visit the old town and The Santa Teresa district, billed as a bohemian, arts enclave. It was positioned as something akin to the Montmartre district in Paris. Don’t expect anything even close to...More
A visit to this Bohemian arty neighbourhood, with old colourful colonial houses, is a must do on a visit to Rio. This is best done around noon when the restaurants and bars of the neighbourhood our open. The place has old world charm, something in...More
This neighborhood of Rio has become every guide book’s darling yet we failed to understand why. Yes the old houses weee beautiful but are now beyond shabby and there are really a couple of streets worth following.
So if not planning to eat or drink...More

Santa Teresa is a bohemian enclave hosting many local artists’ studios. The narrow, winding streets of this neighbourhood were revitalised years ago, and visitors can now stroll through this area to view magnificent mansions dating back to the late 19th and early 20th century. A highlight not miss: Museu Chacará do Céu, a former mansion turned museum which houses works by prominent Brazilian modern artists.

In daytime the parks are general safe, but remember to take your precautions. Don't wear expensive things, like jewelery, fancy watches and that kind off stuff and of course not a lot of money. If you happen to be robbed don't act like a hero just give away what they are after. A privat guide in Santa Teresa can do, but you also manage by your own as long as you are a bit streetwise.I
