From there it`s just a short walk to the house.There is also a set of stairs just in front of the house that leads you through the favela onto the main street (Rua Gustavo Sampaio, in front of n.155) in just a couple of minutes.From there:- In Avenida Atlantica there are Bus connections to Copacabana, Ipanema, Maracana, Botafogo, Centro, etc.- In Avenida Princesa Isabel (5 min walk) there are many bus connections to all parts of town including the Airports, Rodviaria, Universities, etc.- Taxis and mototaxis available 24 hours in Rua Gustavo Sampaio (Leme)- Nearest Metro Station is Cardeal Arcoverde (15 min walk)We have developed a very special relationship with the neighbors here in Chapéu. We encourage our clients to interact with the locals, go the local bar for a barbecue and enjoy the festive atmosphere.
