Before we get into the guide, here are a few facts about Brazil:
Below is a list of a few unique experiences and must-do activities in some of the most popular ‘stadium cities’ in the country.
One of the most vibrant, animated and exuberant cities on Earth! Located in south-eastern Brazil, Rio de Janeiro is the most visited city of South America due to its famous mountains, landmarks, beaches and Carnival festival.
Not only is São Paulo the largest city in Brazil, but it is also one of the largest in the world according to population. São Paulo is known for its skyscrapers, gastronomy and robust culture scene.
Nice beaches, dynamic shopping and lively culture all make Fortaleza, Brazil’s fifth largest city, a wonderful place to visit.
Salvador is a historic Old City with gorgeous beaches, lively culture and one of the world’s biggest Carnival celebrations. Arguably one of Brazil’s top spots to visit.
The capital of the Amazonas state in north-western Brazil, Manaus is an important tourist destination because it serves as a gateway to the Amazon rainforest.
