Highly respected practical guidebook.
Rio de Janeiro in the Countries, Regions and Cities series from Rough Guides; comprehensively detailed guidebooks specifically designed for independent travellers and serving a range of worldwide destinations. Widely recognised for their free editorial style, Rough Guide authors are allowed to express their personal opinions on a range of subjects. Although sometimes controversial, this editorial stance allows readers to experience more detailed and personal takes on each destination, a feature often more limited in other guidebooks. Cultural and historical nuances are explored in significant depth throughout the text and descriptions on the ambience of individual settings alongside personal recommendations, particularly in cities, are notably prevalent.


Each Rough Guide in the Countries, Regions and Cities series has a similar layout. A ‘Basics’ section gives practical guidance on getting there and around, accommodation, food and drink, festivals, sports and outdoor activities, travelling with children and travel essentials to take on the trip. Each guide is organised geographically by region, with individual sections detailing an extensive range of sights, places of interest, attractions, restaurants, nightlife, accommodation and any local activities. Cultural and historical context is interwoven throughout the text, allowing readers to get a more distinct flavour of the destination.


Each chapter of the guide begins with a Highlights section giving an overview of the main sites and attractions in the area or region, with page numbers where relevant. Basic street outlines are also included for major cities. Information Boxes throughout the text explore local history, culture, customs and leisure activities, often providing an alternative and personal view of the area. A ‘Contexts’ section is included at the back of each guide, offering insight into the local history and recommended books and films that characterise the country, region or city.
