The grand old dame of the southern hemisphere – a magnificent sweep of airy 20th century towers – Copacabana takes everything in her stride. Attractive old world flair with a bright ´n´ breezy outlook, Copacabana became famous for her lavish new year´s eve get-togethers, long list of international admirers (many almost as celebrated as herself) and inviting sandy expanses. However, it is her lesser-known corners, spruce establishments and tree-lined boulevards that continue to delight visitor and neighbour alike, making Copacabana the most timeless spot in Rio to lay down some roots of your own.
