Rio has a rich heritage. The city was mostly a colonial capital until 1808, when Napoleon invaded Portugal and decided to ship the Portuguese royal family and most of the Lisbon nobles to Rio de Janeiro. The kingdom’s capital was transferred to the city, making it the only European capital outside of Europe. As there was no space or housing to accommodate the sudden influx of noblemen, many inhabitants were simply evicted from their homes. The royals stayed on in Rio until 1821. Today, when people hear about Rio de Janeiro, they often remember its beaches, beautiful women, natural beauty and its buildings.
Rio de Janeiro is one of the most exotic places on earth. The sun and beaches during the day give away to a whole new world of excitement at night. The nightlife in Rio de Janeiro is exciting and vibrant. If you are looking for a place to take in some music you have many choices available in Rio. Samba is one of the favored types of music of the region and on any given night you can find it playing loudly along with people dancing. You can either sit and watch the band or join in the fun and take a spin on the dance floor. Many establishments are licensed so you can sip a cocktail while you soak in the ambiance.
If you’d rather take in a show there are several different theatre options at your disposal in Rio de Janeiro. Most of the local newspapers will have listings and finding directions is never difficult. The locals are often the first to help if you ask which way is which.
The beach at night in Rio de Janeiro is breathtaking. You do want to be mindful of which beach you are heading to as some aren’t policed and unfavorable characters gather there looking for unwitting tourists. If you want to party on the beach during the wee hours of the night consider visiting Copacabana beach. This is a popular destination for both natives and tourists alike.
