"It's difficult to argue against the claim that there's no place in the world endowed with a more beautiful natural setting than Rio de Janeiro. This large city sparkles around Guanabara Bay guarded by lofty peaks from where the bright and distinct colors between sea, city and mountain look like hues Gaugin only dreamed about."
