The decorations and artwork available is great! Many statues, paintings and tapestries. The hanging gardens are fabulous! We took a guided tour, the guide was great and very knowledgeable.

I have been there countless times as a reporter and returned recently just to enjoy the beauty of the architecture and art collections scattered throughout. For foreigners, a guide is essential.

Itamaraty is the best palace to visit in Brasilia. It is full of sculptures, paintings, carpets, historic furniture and beautiful gardens. From the second floor there is a nice view to other famous buildings.

This is one of architect Oscar Niemeyers best designs IMHO. They do tours but you need to go on their schedule.

Take a couple of hours to take the guided tour (no charge) of the Itamaraty Palace. It is, by far, the best place in Brasilia where you can summarize Brazilian modernism and history. Art, architecture, landscaping, museum -- it is all there. Enjoy!
