★ Experience the Marvellous City ★

So you're flying down to Rio and looking for the hottest beaches and best carnival events. Or you're already there and feeling daunted by the city beyond Ipanema and Copacabana. Either way, this comprehensive guide to the "Cidade Maravilhosa" is the answer!

There's plenty of beach and nightlife glitz to find in this world-famous city, but Rio offers far more history, culture, and nature than most visitors imagine. You can visit royal palaces, inspired museums, and colonial churches lined with gold - or climb impressive mountain-tops and hang glide over dazzling bays and forest.

The app has 200 entries written by an expert on Rio, with everything from samba music and eating out to soccer stadiums, art galleries, and favela tours. Plus there are essential tips on navigating the airport, city transport, and recommendations on accommodation for every budget. One of the joys of Rio is simply meeting Cariocas - the city's animated residents - so expect plenty of insider guidance on the friendliest spots in town.

Rio! is exceptionally easy to use: you can sort by area, price, type, or by places closest to you - wherever you are. Each attraction, restaurant and nightspot is mapped directly by the author, so there are no misleading directions. Over 500 photos will help you visualise the city's many sights.

*Regular (free!) updates, including the latest tips on carnival, sports events, and new restaurants and hotels*

Great app!

This app helped me plan my trip to Rio, so I had an idea of where I wanted to go when I got there (the guide even includes airport info, arrival, safety info, buses, taxis, hotel info, tour info, etc). I have NO NEED to buy a paper guide book. This Rio guide does it all!

The map section is great because because once I'm on location, I'll be able to find whatever I'm looking for thanks to the offline content.

Thanks for this app! Can't wait to get to Rio and use it!

Like traveling w a local

I've been to Rio, danced in the Sambodromo, and noshed on freshly-grilled shrimp while lounging on Copacabana. But this time 'round, I wanted to show my local hosts some new spots and strike out on my own. this app helped me do all that and with great functionality (love the maps!). Great addition to everyone's travel kit - whether they' ve been to Rio before or not.
