Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Both a travelogue and a look inside 20 spectacular local homes, "At Home in Rio" is a stylish overview of the city's history, beaches, nightlife, parties, and sensuous Carioca lifestyle. Vibrant photographs capture Rio's samba beat, from the legendary Copacabana to a white-walled mountain aerie designed by Oscar Niemeyer to Carnavale's raucous parades, while knowledgeable text gives an overview of the city's dynamic art, architecture, and sense of color. A 16-page supplement provides an insider's list of key local stores, restaurants, bars, and other useful information.
