Rio de Janeiro sits atop a mountainside between immense forests and the ocean.

Ships and visitors are greeted by the famous and monumental statue of Christ the Redeemer, anchored more than 700 meters high in the Corcovado granite overlooking a megalopolis of 12 million inhabitants.

Proud, beautiful, serene and self-confident, welcoming, vibrant with life, music and dance, parties, laughter and joy, Rio de Janeiro is a city of contrasts with a rich heritage from the past, quaint neighbourhoods, a pulsating heart and a constant drive to reinvent itself.
