Pão de Açúcar: Sugar Loaf Mountain, Brazil

One of Rio’s most famous landmarks, it’s the best place to view the city, sea and mountain ranges. Take the funicular ride up for a glorious view of the Guanabara Bay, Botafogo beach to the North and Copacabana to the South, with the city spread in between. Be sure to check out the old open-air cable car on display that was used in the ’30s. There are vendors selling coconuts and juice, as well as a food and refreshments stand.
