Completed in 1885 the Curitiba- Paranagua railway line is still a testimony of great engineering and doubtless the most remarkable train journey in Brazil. On the way you will have fantastic views of the lush Serra do Mar, covered by Atlantic Rainforest. Stop in Morretes for a quick visit of this charming colonial town and typical Barreado lunch. Then continue to Ilha do Mel, a car-free picturesque island in Paranaguá bay. Outside summer holidays is a great place to unwind, while enjoying the simple pleasures of life.
