Some say that Brazil defies description. The attractions of Rio de Janeiro and the “Copacabana” have become legendary, as has the Amazon Rain Forest. Yet other parts of this vast county are equally impressive including the wetlands of the Pantanal, the incredible 60's architecture of Brasilia, and the beautifully preserved colonial city of Olinda. Flying to Brazil, cosseted by Alitalia’s legendary service style, will give you the chance to see some of these wonders for yourself.
For stunning natural grandeur and electric vitality, Rio can’t be easily beaten and its Carnival is the largest and most glamorous in the world. The capital of Brasilia is a must for anyone with an interest in modernist architecture. Recife is another fascinating city for visitors, with a UNESCO World Heritage Site ancient center that blends into an ultra-modern skyline and some great beaches. Travel to Brazil with Alitalia and all of these cities, plus many more, will be within reach.
For many travelers planning to fly to Brazil, their journey must coincide with a local carnival. These are typically around Ash Wednesday, in February-March (the dates vary slightly). All times of the year are great for visiting this country though and big cities may be quieter outside of Carnival.
