  • Address: Niteroi, RJ, Brazil, Brazil
Nicknamed “The Smile City,” Niteroi is home to nearly 500,000 people and just a ferry ride away from the hustle and bustle of Rio. And while the soon-to-be-home of the summer Olympics definitely has a draw, travelers agree the charm of Niteroi sends plenty of visitors across the waters to its much more scenic shores. 

In addition to exploring some of the country’s most secluded (and beautiful) beaches, travelers can wander the halls of Nitero’s Museum of Contemporary Art or take in a show at Teatro Popular. Some of the best city views can be found at Parque da Cidade, and catching sunset from this high up neighborhood is a must for couples in love. History buffs can also get their fill on tours of several area forts, including Fortaleza de Santa Cruz and Barao do Rio Branco.  

Practical Info

Niteroi is located in the southeast region of Brazil across the Guanabara Bay from Rio de Janeiro. It is considered part of the city’s metropolitan area. It’s considered the country’s richest city and its name means “water that hides.” Niteroi is accessible via a 15-minute ferry ride from Rio or by traveling over Ponte Rio-Niteroi, Brazil’s longest bridge.
