- Actually I am not still a traveller scholar but I used the subway in Rio alot and I had the chance to know the subway system in São Paulo pretty well, I can say that SUBWAY in Rio really serves the city. Just in Copacabana there are 3 METRO STATIONS: CARDEAL ARCOVERDE SIQUEIRA CAMPOS CANTAGALO I live closer to Cantagalo, actually it is only 4 blocks from my apartment and it is a great deal to avoid traffic jams and being in the city quite fast. Most of our visitors stays in Copacabana or in Ipanema, and for me the easiest and safest way to stroll around Rio and going to specific places, just use the METRO! It is fast and modern! In the picture I was going in my way to the airport to visit my land Maranhão with my friend Rafael, and that is what I did, I took the METRO in Cantagalo then I got off at Estacio Station, then as Estacio is a district quite close to the main highway to the airport, I took a taxi outside, I saved time because I avoid lots of traffic and I saved money taking a cab in a much less distanceif I had to take a cab since Copacabana!
