Walking around Jardim Botânico (Botanical Garden), walking under the
shadows of alleys of palms, breathing the clean air and the peace of tree-lined
streets is one of the most indicated programmes to scape from the heat. Walking
or bicycling, around the Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas’ (Rodrigo de Freitas'
lake) border, magnificent water mirror enclosed by mountains, that offers an
equipped leisure space and kiosks where you can eat and drink very well.
