Sightsee around Petrópolis, The Imperial City, on this tour with a professional guide. As you explore palaces and other iconic sights of Petrópolis, learn about the history and culture of the city. This tour includes an entry ticket to Petrópolis’ Imperial Museum. After pickup, the first stop will be at Palacio Quintadinha and the second at the Cathedral of Petrópolis, the mother church of Petrópolis. Along the tour, visit the Imperial Museum of Petrópolis, one of the places seen as mandatory to visit to get to know everything about the Brazilian monarchy. The museum is housed in the Petrópolis Imperial Palace, the former summer residence of Emperor Pedro II. As the tour continues, visit the house of Santos Dumont, a picturesque residence that’s now a museum. Learn Dumont’s story before heading to the Crystal Palace. At the Crystal Palace, marvel at the pre-assembled structure that was commissioned by Count d'Eu, being built in the workshops of the Saint-Souver Lés Arras Corporation in France. The structure is inspired by the Crystal Palace in London and the Crystal Palace of Oporto. See these sights and much more on this tour of Petrópolis.

Ederson was such a kind and passionate tour guide and gave us so much interesting information on the historical and cultural significance of each Petrópolis landmark we went to. He was a very flexible tour guide, as well, modifying his tour to allow us to have lunch with our friends. 5 stars, highly recommend!
