- This hectic thoroughfare in Centro may bear little resemblance today to the elegant Parisian boulevards it was modelled on, but take time to glance upwards as you dodge the crowds and you'll spot some seriously impressive architecture. The rushing traffic and crush of bodies makes it a little difficult to navigate at times, but try to take a slow stroll down here to appreciate what was once Rio's most celebrated street.
