8 Hours Culture tour itinerary for Rio de Janeiro & Niterói: Step Into This Brazilian Fortress And Art Museum
Rio de Janeiro, Niterói
Visit one of the neighbouring cities, Nictheroy, with its geographical location just across from Guanabara Bay. Explore the beautiful fortress of Santa Cruz da Barra & art collections at the Museum of Contemporary Art.
Drive across the Rio-Niteroi Bridge.
Take-in the coastline of Niteroi across the beaches from Boa Viagem.
As you venture across the Rio-Niteroi Bridge, start your tour off at the Museum of Contemporary Art, one of the beauties of Oscar Niemeyer considered a milestone in Brazilian architecture. A very futuristic structure with its aerodynamic shape similar to a flying saucer.
Explore the art collection of Joao Satamini, including an interesting collection of Brazilian Contemporary Art from various Brazilian artists from all parts of Brazil from the first half of the 20th century.
Following the beautiful coastline, pass a section of town that still has the look and feel of an old and bucolic fishing village to reach the beautiful fortress of Santa Cruz da Barra, the largest and most important fortress of the colonial military time. Built by the end of the 16th century, it was the first fortress erected to protect the entrance to Guanabara Bay.
Stop for lunch at a cosy seafood restaurant at the fisherman village.
