Day 2 City Tour

Depending on the location of your game, join a guided tour of the hosting city:


Belo Horizonte: Beaga, as the city is famously known, is the sixth most populous city in Brazil. Home to just over 2.4 million residents, the city offers a wide array of cultural activities, natural wonders, and expansive park systems. Belo Horizonte has several reasons for being constantly appointed as one of the Latin American metropolises that provides the best qualify of life.


Brasilia: One of the city's most striking features is found in its wide avenues which surround its public buildings and two districts, one to the north and the other to the south. Widely considered to be avant-garde city in architectural terms, the Metropolitan Cathedral of Brasilia and the Juscelino Kubitschek Bridge are without doubt the most iconic structures. Both were designed by Oscar Niemeyer, the man behind most of the landmark buildings in the new capital. Brasilia is the only 20th century city to have been declared a UNESCO World Heritage site.


Cuiaba: This charming city confronts three of Brazil's most important and characteristic ecosystems: the savannahs of the Cerrado; the wetlands of the Pantanal; and the Amazon. With such a massive presence of nature, it is no wonder, then, that Cuiaba has been nicknamed the ‘Green City'. The mountain range of Chapada dos Guimaraes offers archaeological sites and a 3,300-square kilometre National Park which attracts thousands of visitors every year.


Curitiba: The most populous city in the southern region of Brazil, Curitiba is the home to 1.8 million inhabitants and stands right at the centre of a metropolitan area whose economy ranks fourth in terms of contribution to the country's gross national product. With all that, Curitiba still maintains the structural conditions to offer a remarkable welfare and quality of life to its residents, thanks to its innumerable parks and a high-profile cultural schedule.


Fortaleza: Most of the attractions in Fortaleza revolve around its beaches: the Praia do Futuro (Future Beach) popular for its several barracas - simple kiosk-restaurants built on the sand that serve fresh, typical seafood - while Iracema is the place for bars and nightclubs. There is also more bucolic Mucuripe Beach, from where fishermen venture into the sea with their jangadas (handmade wooden boats). The coastal Beira Mar avenue is also the place for a traditional daily craftsmen's fair and for some of the top spots to dance the forró, a typical rhythm from the north-east of Brazil.


Manaus: The combination of outstanding natural beauty, local traditions and a metropolis on the rise gives Manaus a unique atmosphere, thanks to such diverse features as the Teatro Amazonas - an impressive concert hall that houses the annual Amazonas Opera Festival - and the Boi-Manaus, which is a celebration of the city's anniversary, rocked by the sounds of the typical rhythm of the "boi-bumba".


Natal: The capital of Rio Grande do Norte enjoyed moderate growth until the 20th century. The construction of the Via Costeira - a large coastal avenue - in the 1980s was a milestone for the development of Natal, which is now one of the preferred destinations for foreigners visiting Brazil. They come for such wonders as Ponta Negra, Genipabu, Redinha, Pipa, Pirangi and several other spectacular beaches within the city and right next to it.


Porto Alegre: This charming city lies on the eastern bank of the Guaíba River, right at the convergence point of five other rivers, which together form the enormous Lagoa dos Patos (Ducks Lagoon). It's attractive draw comes in its more than one million trees, making it one of the greenest cities in Brazil, despite being the nucleus of the fourth-most populous metropolitan area in the country, with roughly four million inhabitants. There are over 1.4 million people living within the boundaries of Porto Alegre.


Recife: Offering some of the finest beaches in the country, Recife is a golden paradise. Because of its economical importance for the region, the city is often called ‘the capital of the North-east'.


Rio de Janeiro: Rio's rich history and colorful locals have contributed to making the city one of the best known known and loved across the globe. Explore the city's famous beaches, iconic statues, and friendly locals.


Salvador: The city of Salvador is a historical gem in Brazil. Largely influenced by African culture, the city is vibrant and charming.


Sao Paulo: Sao Paulo's work-oriented vocation attracted huge contingents of immigrants after the turn of the 19th century. As a consequence, the capital of the state of Sao Paulo is by far the most ethnically diverse city in Brazil, hosting an estimated 100 different ethnicities that have helped put up the country's major economy, responsible for 12,26 per cent of the country's gross domestic product.
