In the morning, guests will be picked up from their hotels in Rio de Janeiro. Please see "Departure and Return" for more detailed information regarding pickup and drop-off times and locations. We will take a coach bus over the Rio-Niteroi bridge on our way to Buzios. Upon arrival here, we will take a walk through cobblestone streets rich with a quaint charm, made famous by the French actress Brigitte Bardot when she fell in love with the town in the 1960s. Buzios, once a quiet fishing village, has changed dramatically in some ways, and not at all in others. Here we will encounter friendly residents from over 44 nationalities.
