NileGuide Expert Says:
The bus journey from Rio to Petropolis is a treat in itself - sit on the left hand side of the bus for the best views as you wind through the mountains.
- Petrópolis is a very attractive mountain retreat about 60 kilometers from Rio. Built by German immigrants, it has a distinct European flavor. Petrópolis' main annual event is the Festa do Colono Alemão, which takes place in June. The best way to see Petrópolis' attractions is on foot. It takes about two hours to walk around the city. Buses from Rio to Petrópolis leave daily from 5am every 30 minutes. The trip takes approximately an hour and 30 minutes.
