Christo Redentor on Corcovado is less than 30
minutes away from the apartment by taxi. Here
you can take the cog train up to see the statue of
Christ. Once up there you will see a spectacular
panorama view of Rio and the surrounding areas.
Pao do Acucar (Sugarloaf) is less than 30
minutes away by taxi.. Here you can take two
cable cars up to the summit were you get a
view of Rio, Niteroi, and the Baia de
Guanabara Bay.  At sunset the sparkling city
lights from this vantage point are spectacular.
Arcos da Lapa (the old aqueduct) in the Lapa
Area, is less than 30 minutes away by taxi or
Metro from the apartment.  In this area you can
take the bondhino (little tram) to the Santa Teresa
neighborhood. On Friday and Saturday nights the
Lapa  area turns into a local gathering place with
colorful bars, restaurants, and nightclubs.
There are many other activities that you can do that are less than 30
minutes away by taxi, Metro, or walking.  You can go to the Rio Sul
Shopping Mall, take a ferry across the Baia de Guanabara Bay to
Niteroi, visit one of the many museums in Rio or visit the Jardim
Botanico. You can also take side trips and spend a few days in  
Petropolis, Buzios, or Paraty.  For more detailed information about Rio
de Janeiro, we suggest that you pick up a good travel book such as
Frommers, Fodor's, or the Lonely Planet.  If you have a specific
