Culture in Rio de Janeiro

Rio de Janeiro culture is about far more than just samba and sexy Brazilians.

The beaches and the beautiful people are obvious attractions in their own right, but scratch the surface of Rio de Janeiro and you'll find a packed cultural calender of events, Cultural things to do range from free classical music performances to some excellent museums and galleries, and its not uncommon to stumble across street music and dance performances.

Music lovers in Rio will be spoilt rotten - fantastic live samba can be heard all over the city, while choro, forro and pagode are other musical forms you're likely to hear during your vacation in Rio de Janeiro.

Budget travelers are in luck too, many of the city's galleries and events are free of charge, making it possible for culture vultures to feast on high-brow goodies without spending a centavo.
