Routes of Rio Grande do Sul - Porto Alegre-Canela via the "Romantic Route"

Do you like to travel ? How do you like to travel ?

People usually like to travel in order to get to see beautiful places and nice cities. However, not so many travellers enjoy the road itself. If you want to take a nice car trip in Rio Grande do Sul, you should try the "Romantic Route". This route begins in São Leopoldo and ends in São Francisco de Paula, with some beautiful side trips branching off along the way. If you are travelling from Porto Alegre to Canela or Gramado, which are the most visited cities in the mountains, you may go straight on BR-116 highway and turn right just after Nova Petrópolis following route RS-235. This is not the fastest way to get to the region, but it is surely the most interesting. The road scenery is incredible and there are some places with a breathtaking view of the mountains, where you can pull over and take some pictures. In addition, there are lots of nice restaurants and good shops on the way. Following is a picture that I took some weeks ago. Enjoy your trip!
