The Copacabana Fort, located at the southern end of the famous Copacabana Beach in Rio de Janeiro, is a historic military base that is open to the public. Inside, you'll find the impressive Historical Museum, as well as the actual Fort Copacabana, which served as a coastal defense fort. For a dining experience unlike any other, head to Confeitaria Colombo, one of the finest and most sophisticated restaurants in the area, located right inside the fort. Copacabana is one of the oldest and most iconic neighborhoods in Rio, offering visitors some of the most breathtaking views in the city. Just next to it lies Arpoador, which marks the end of Ipanema. Be sure to witness the stunning sunset from this vantage point, as it offers a spectacular light show that is a true carioca experience. This is a must-do activity if you want to immerse yourself in Brazilian culture and make your trip to Rio even more special.
