Our Niteroi City Tour takes you to the other side of Guanabara bay, to Niterói city, a charming middle class town with a great view of Rio. It`s a beautiful city, with awesome beaches and excellent restaurants. Niterói is considered one of the wealthiest cities of Rio de Janeiro state, with a higher income and a better life quality, comparing to most of its cities . With a bit less than 500.000 inhabitants , the city has one of the largest concentration of high schools and colleges in the country. It was also nicknamed “The Smile City” (Cidade Sorriso), and it is just a short ferry boat ride from Rio, across Guanabara Bay. As a matter of fact, in Niterói you will find plenty of reasons to smile about: awesome beaches , historical fortresses and a world-class museum. And besides all that, the city will soon become the place with the second largest number of works from world famous architect Oscar Niemeyer – being Brasilia, the brazilian capital the first one.
