Rio de Janeiro: The Monocle Travel Guide Series
A sunny stroll through Rio de Janeiro’s outposts of good food, design, retail, and more.
With its glorious coastline, dramatic mountains, and urban rainforest, Rio de Janeiro is a city that immediately hits you between the eyes with its natural beauty.

From lively neighborhood bars and intricate beach culture, to sculptural public gardens and concrete modernist buildings, there is a lot more to Rio than bronzed bodies on Ipanema Beach.
The so-called Marvellous City has never ceased to capture hearts—now it’s your turn to fall for its charms.
