Rio de Janeiro - Zona Norte (Chapter)
This is the Zona Norte chapter from Lonely Planet’s Rio de Janiero guidebook.
Vast Zona Norte sprawls many kilometers toward the Baixada Fluminense. It boasts fewer attractions than the Zona Sul and Centro, but there are still excellent reasons to visit, including soccer rowdiness at Maracanã, great views from little-visited landmarks and historical intrigue at former palaces.
- hear the roar of the crowd as some of the world’s best players take to the field inside the hallowed Maracanã Football Stadium.
- take a stroll amid the greenery of the once imperial Quinta da Boa Vista.
- explore relics from Brazil’s early 19th-century past at the neoclassical Museu do Primeiro Reinado.
- restaurants & bars
