Many visitors to Rio never make the ferry ride across Guanabara Bay to Niteroi, but this museum, set in beautiful gardens, is one good reason to make the crossing. A beautiful, tile-clad 1800s building, Solar do Jambeiro was formely the mansion home of artist Antonio Parreiras. The furnishings, hand-painted tiles and works of art are noteworthy in themselves, but it's the lush gardens, filled with towering trees and vegetation, that are the real draw here. Keep an eye out for exotic birds and wildlife such as the too—toucans and the little monkeys known locally as 'micos' who are among the regular visitors to the gardens.
