Barra's Guide

There are endless attractions close to Rio de Janeiro, being particularly concentrated to the north and west, along the Costa Verde and within the Itatiaia region. The exceptional beaches and prison ruins on the Ilha Grande make for a popular day trip destination, while regular ferries cross the bay and link the attractions of Niteroi with Rio de Janeiro in a matter of minutes, since this enticing city is a mere 16 km / 10 miles to the east.
 
Other attractions close to Rio de Janeiro include the coastal city of Armacao dos Buzios, the resort of Grumari, the appealing city of Petrópolis, and the mountain town of Teresopolis, amongst many other popular destinations. Although Sao Paulo is actually 441 km / 274 miles from Rio and therefore too far to even consider a day trip, it should not be overlooked.
