Petrópolis is a very attractive mountain retreat and was the summer home of Brazilian Emperors and royalty in the 19th-century. Named after Emperor Pedro II, it was built by German immigrants. Nestled on the Serra Fluminense mountain range, it is a travelers paradise. Nicknamed 'The Imperial City,' this picturesque city has many attractions that can be seen on foot. Some of them are the Imperial Museum, Crystal Palace, São Pedro de Alcântara Cathedral and the Museu Casa de Santos Dumont. For those who love adventure there are several options available as well. Shoppers will love Rua Teresa where you can buy clothes for a steal.
