Getting to Petropolis is pretty easy, grab a taxi from Ipanema beach and head to the Rodovaria Novo Rio (pronounced hodo-viara). It cost R$ 35.-- Once in the station, head over to the Facil/Unica counter on Platform 6. The bus company Unica/Facil operates between Rio de Janeiro and Petropolis. Their buses are new and fairly comfortable. An hour later, you should be in the Rodoviaria Petropolis which is located outside the city.
