Brazil may be huge but Rio de Janeiro is still close enough to these major cities to allow for thrilling weekends getaways for a different experience. Here are some great cities to visit in Brazil that are near to Rio. São Paulo. São Paulo is just an hour’s flight away from Rio de Janeiro and is a journey made by hundreds of people every day, mostly motivated for work reasons as executives travel between these two huge but very different cities for business meetings. From the first glance, São Paulo can seem a vast, grey city yet underneath this somewhat uninspiring facade is a rich, colorful and vibrant culture, a city that never sleeps and anything goes.
