    CITY DESCRIPTION

    From the exquisite landscape to its unique spectrum of cultures, Rio de Janeiro has earned the title of ‘Cidade Maravilhosa’ and the Brazilians' ingenious creativity is amazing. They possess a cultural identity entirely of their own. It is a city that does not fall short in giving an unforgettable experience. In this modern era, Brazil has evolved into a tourist-friendly destination that allows visitors to safely experience its infamous culture. Rio is a city full of life, nature and fun.
    MONTROI team wanted to explore the city in all its vibrant glory; to see the lights and feel the energy with other nomads. It's best to travel smart, discovering the city on foot instead of by cab - to sidestep traffic; public amenities are well organized and hassle free, enabling an enjoyable journey.
