Rio do Janeiro is THE place to be for the 2014 World Cup. For the second time in the nation’s history, Brazil will host the most highly anticipated and watched sporting event in the world. The last time this country that lives, breathes and sweats soccer hosted a World Cup tournament was in 1950. But their national team has won five World Cup titles, making them one of the most successful clubs in soccer history and ensuring they are a formidable home team opponent to every visiting nation they face.
Thirty-two teams will compete for the championship in 12 host cities over the course of four weeks. Rio de Janeiro’s Maracanã Stadium will host the World Cup Final, a venue that is being renovated to hold a whopping 90,000 spectators.
Enjoy deluxe accommodations in the famous Copacabana Beach area and the flexibility to select the games of your choice, using Rio as your base. Expert concierge services before and during your trip, along with onsite hosts and private transportation, free you to relax and enjoy this peak sporting event every step of the way.
And although it’s no secret that Brazil is a soccer nation through and through, there is definitely more to do in this fabulous country than watch The Beautiful Game. Go beyond the playing fields to experience the culture and beauty of Brazil on an optional guided tour of Rio de Janeiro or a churrascaria barbecue on Copacabana Beach (additional cost). You may also add extra nights, dinner reservations, private guides and custom tailored day-trip adventures and excursions. It's a perfect chance to combine the excitement of world-class soccer with the discovery of Brazil's lush beauty and vibrant culture.
