Experience Rio During the Confederations Cup!
Though the World Cup in 2014 may be stealing the spotlight, passionate soccer fans worldwide don't want to miss out on the biggest tournament of 2013, the Confederations Cup. The tournament will serve as a prelude to the World Cup and with Brazil acting as host - and also defending champions - the excitement and pageantry of this prestigious event will be talked about for years to come. Be among the first to experience Rio in all its glory, including the newly refurbished Maracanã Stadium, a legend in itself. The stadium will be electric as the top two teams battle it out in the pinnacle event of the competition. While there is perhaps nothing quite as revered as 'the beautiful game' in Rio, the city offers so much more than just football. From the sparkling beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema to the iconic Christ the Redeemer Statue resting atop Mount Corcovado, it's easy to see why Rio has been dubbed the Cidade Maravilhosa (The Marvelous City).
