Wise words:

In the second of a two-part series of local guides to Rio de Janeiro, Carioca Instagrammer Ticiana Porto (@ticianaporto) shares her favorite places to capture in the Cidade Maravilhosa (Marvelous City). Ticiana has lived in Rio for 10 years and has challenged herself to take and share a different photo of the city each day since 2011. To kick off your visit, Ticiana suggests cycling along the seaside, starting in the eastern beach community of Leblon. “Head west and you’ll reach the famous sidewalks of Ipanema and then Arpoador, a small peninsula with a great view. Stop for a photo and a coconut in Arpoador, then keep cycling along Copacabana Beach to the Leme neighborhood.” Not a fan of cycling? Ticiana also encourages visitors to stop and spend an afternoon on Ipanema Beach, drinking caipirinhas and admiring the fashions. “In Ipanema, everyone goes to the beach dressed and ready for their night out after.” Looking for grand views of Rio? Ticiana recommends three trips: photograph Cristo Redentor (Christ the Redeemer) from atop the Pão de Açúcar (Sugarloaf); see the view of Floresta Atlântica and the Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas from atop Corcovado
