What you'll do

After meeting at the metro station, we will go by uber through the heart of Tijuca National Park and reach the beginning of the trail. The walk is pleasant and moderate, and it takes approximately 25-35 minutes: there is no rush and we will respect what our body says. Going slowly allows us to appreciate the beauty of nature and have some breath for talking, or let's leave the talk for later?! Once we reach the top we will observe the breathtaking views that change from the different edges of the mountain: Gávea stone, Barra beaches, São Conrado, Leblon and Ipanema, besides Dois irmãos hill, Tijuca Forest and some parts of the South. We will enjoy our time taking pictures, having a rest or simply breathing in the beauty of the place and its peace.
After the descent we will reach Sao conrado, a beautiful white sand beach were there are fewer tourists than Copacabana and Ipanema, and alongside hang gliders softly landing, we'll be surrounded by surfers making good use of the waves, and friends playing beach soccer and footvolley. In order to feel like a local, we can't skip the super typical brazilian delight called Acai! Acai is a brazilian berry served as a smoothie in a bowl and topped with granola and fruit, and mixed with guaranà syrup. And I have discovered the BEST ACAI in the area, yeah...YUMMI! Now we are ready to sunbathe and chill at the beach as real Cariocas!

My 5 years in Rio have been very intense. My friends say I'm the most Carioca (adjective given to Rio's inhabitants) gringa (way to say foreigner) they know...
I was born in Italy and have lived in many countries to satisfy my curiosity towards foreign languages and cultures...but it was in Rio that I found my place!
Graduated translator and interpreter, I also studied tourism and arts, and here in Brazil I discovered how nature and a city can be so interconnected and give us so many points of view!
I have always liked to spend time in beautiful natural spaces and at the same time interacting with locals. My goal is going beyond just traveling and actually LIVING LIKE A LOCAL, and sharing all I know as a foreign and as a local at the same time gives me great pleasure.
