Things to do nearby
Glória is a friendly, family area, extremely well located with buses, metro and taxis to take you quickly to where you want to go. Five minutes walk from the apartment you will find all the amenities you need, and it's a great neighborhood to stroll around. Keep an eye on your possessions, don't use your cell phone on the street, observe the basic rules of survival in a big city, take a taxi after dark, and go ahead and have the time of your life!
From the Gloria metro station you can be in Maracana in twenty minutes, or (in the opposite direction) to Copacabana beach. Downtown is a fifteen minute walk, as is the throbbing nightlife of Lapa, while the Kombi van will whisk you up the hill to the artist's quarter of Santa Teresa in a matter of minutes. Taxis will get you to the local airport in ten minutes and to the international airport in around one hour. It would be hard to find a more convenient location for your base for exploring the Marvelous City!

I was born in England, I"m married and have two kids and three grandkids, and I live and work with Brazilian and international students in the Atlantic Rainforest. I''m a writer and lecturer, I travel a lot, and my current challenge is learning enough spoken Japanese to be understood when I join the Japanese Peace Boat later this year! I love to travel - both for work and for fun. My last adventure was six weeks by bus, train, camel and truck along the Silk Route in Western China and around the fringes of Tibet, and I''m planning a trip to Eastern Siberia next year to visit the throat singers of Tuva. We love hosting people at Iracambi, and we''re delighted happy to be able to offer our Rio apartment so that you can enjoy the World Cup which sadly we won'';t be able to attend due to a disgracefully heavy work schedule. If you want to visit the rainforest before or after your Rio stay, lease get in touch! .
