Highly recommend this place, very clean and hygienic. Variety of ice creams to choose from and the portions are enormous. Personal favourite was the ferrero. Visited this place pretty much everyday during my stay in Rio because it was so good.

I like Amarena so much that I go there once a week... The flavours are a mix of Brazilian fruits and classical Italians. Eventually they bring us new ones! All of them in high quality made of ingredients brought from Italy. Try the Moonwalker, pistachio,...More

The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional
and old areas from Rio de Janeiro. This neighbourhood
is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and
traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit of
everything: bars with music, pubs, street fairs,
chaotic streets, and many shops. All these things and
more live side-by-side. There are options for all
price points and tastes. However, the most powerful
