Experience the Imperial City with your own private local guide!


City founded by the last Brazilian Emperor - Peter II - in 1884, in order to leave the Capital during summer, became the only city in America where there is an Imperial Palace, today the Imperial Museum. The city had been planned and built following the plans of an architect, Major Archer and built at the hillsides of the mountains, 800 meters high. Nice, weather, nice gastronomy and lovely atmosphere make this place a very special one.

A Recent Review of this tour

This day was OK with Leandro. He was whineing and complaining as usual. But at least he knew how to get to Petropolis and arranged for us to visit the Palace gift shop.
