The South Zone of Rio de Janeiro is where most tourists usually stay.

Rio's Centro has most of the city's notable churches and museums, including the Modern Art Museum, as well as many of its most famous bars.

The North Zone of Rio has fewer tourist attractions than other parts of town, but it's worth at least one trip to Maracanã Stadium.


Zona Oeste in Rio de Janeiro is the farthest zone from city center and is home to the richest and poorest neighborhoods in Rio.
