About the tour
Come with us and discover Rio’s liveliest neighbourhood, Lapa, and do it when it’s most vibrant, at night time. The Lapa neighbourhood has been the epicentre of Rio’s bohemian scene for over a century. It is the home of some of the best musical bars and dancing halls in the city, and the place where carioca artists have traditionally lived and worked. However, Lapa is not just its history, it’s also its present and its future, and on our Free Tour of Lapa by Night we will make sure you know where it’s been, where it is, and where it is going.
Walk under the famous Carioca Aqueduct, or as the locals call it, the Lapa Arches, and learn about the colonial architecture in some of the most interesting historical streets in the city. Hear about how the neighbourhood had fallen almost into oblivion to then be rescued again, and how its history reflects the history of Brazil. Hear about the lifestyle of some of the great artists, poets and musicians who lived and live there.
