4 of us are planning to come for 10 nights to Rio for the World Cup and have started planning for the trip. I know its a bit early but we want to be prepared for everything when things are likely to come on sale from June onwards.
We are going to apply for matches in Rio but would also like to go and see some games in other relatively close areas. We are thinking of Sao Paulo and Belo Horizonte. Are both places, places we could drive too? How long would it take and is it safe enough for tourists to do. Our first choice is to fly to these areas but we are thinking by the time we find out if we have tickets local flights would have rocketed in price to take advantage of the World Cup so driving would be the only option for us.
Any advice would be grateful.
