Petropolis

3.6

The Imperial City

Once the summer getaway of Brazilian emperors, the "imperial city" of Petropolis serves as a tribute to the lavish lifestyles of Brazil's 19th-century elite. Nowadays, tourism in Petropolis looks a little different, with visitors flocking here to escape the coastal heat and admire the green mountain scenery. The city gained its fame among Brazilian nobility when Emperor Pedro I fell in love with the area's landscape and climate, and decided to build a palace in the area. A Petropolis itinerary offers the chance to explore the former summer palace, as well as many other impressive imperial buildings. Make your own Petropolis vacation itinerary, with a little help from those that know the place like the back of their hands, by using our Brazil day trip site.
