    Ipanema is considered Rio's crown jewel. It offers the
    best view of the sunset from Arpoador and is
    inspiration for the legendary song, “The Girl from
    Ipanema.” Ipanema is an upscale area, home to many
    high-end restaurants and luxury shops, many of which
    can be found on the charming Garcia d'Ávila Avenue.
    The neighbourhood is very rich culturally, housing
    many art galleries that show contemporary art. There
