Bay View from First Stop to Sugarloaf Mountain in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

The views of Guanabara Bay from Morro da Urca are equally impressive. In the center is the Flamengo neighborhood. On the far right is downtown (Centro) and the 8.6 mile Rio–Niterói Bridge crossing the bay. If you prefer to savor this scenic experience, consider skipping the cable car and hiking instead. The round-trip walk to the top of Morro da Urca is about two miles and rated easy.
