MEETING RAFA AND HIS TEAM IN RIO'S PIER
The official name is PORTO MARAVILHA and everything is changed there and I am suprised, it is really impressive, specially with the murals painted by Kobra, our most famous street artist.
As I say in the video...pay attention in these murals and then you will see a water tank and two banches, we will be sitting there waiting for you. Myself and my guides...We have a team who will be waiting for you with arms wide opened. Friends in Rio this is what you will have.
The harbour area is a real touristic attraction nowadays, the promenade is amazing with some crafts and small food quiosks in the weekend, the murals painted by Kobra is to die for and in the main square Mauá or in portuguese, Praça Mauá, and there you can visit the Museum of Tomorrow, a perfect museum disigned by the architect Santiago Calatrava, the same amazing architect that just finished the SUBWAY STATION in the New World Trade Center...I know we have few time to see Rio so spending time in line waiting to see this remarkable museum will be a waste, though it gives you a new idea about World Preservation and life on Earth. You should visit the museum but only in another visit or if you have at least two days in town.
In this promenade there will be Casa do Brasil which will provide a lot of interesting events about Brazilian Culture, plus the Museum of Rio that shows brazilian arts from various periods. So lots to do there and it will be safer at night if you want to walk by!
Right in front of the exit gate which will be terminal 3 or 2, you will see the tram station and I am very proud to tell you that public transportation is very well connect, and from the port you can go everywhere in Rio, safe and fast, and easy connection with our metro system. . Two months ago this same place was packed with constructions, now the wait was really valid because today the area is vibrant, open and happy. We are waiting for you!
You are welcome in Rio anytime, and I am here as your Ambassador in Rio always worried to give you a great time. And my team will be here to give you such a fantastic experience in Rio.
