Just thirty miles from Rio de Janeiro lies the summer hill resort of Petropolis -- a town of stunning scenery founded in 1843 by Emperor Dom Pedro II. The highlight of your day will be a visit to the Imperial Museum, which houses the breathtaking crown jewels and handcrafted royal carriages. Fully furnished and authentically equipped, this museum gives the impression that the royal family, last here in 1889, departed just moments ago. The exhibits are labeled in Portuguese only, so you can explore with your guide if you like. An elevator is available. The tour continues with a photo stop by the Quitandinha and the cathedral.

Enjoy lunch at a typical churrascaria in Petropolis before returning to Rio.
