PM H/D City Tour. (Not available on Sundays) . Tour leaves hotel to visit Manaus’ highlights that are: Teatro Amazonas, the famous Manaus Opera House (built in 1896) a rich example of the wealth of the region at the time of the rubber boom. All materials from cement were imported, being that only the Amazonian hardwoods are local. Marble columns imported from Italy, Belgium and French mirrors, ironwork from England and stonework from Portugal. Built basically in neoclassical style though eclectic from the mixture of patterns, its dome contains 36 thousand enameled ceramic tiles painted in the colors of the Brazilian flag. The auditorium is shaped like a harp and the stage curtain has a huge canvas painting entitle “The Meeting of the Waters” which was painted in Paris by Crispim do Amaral. In the Noble Room, decorated by Domenico de Angelis, there are delicate tinted chandeliers and a parquet floor composed of twelve thousand pieces of wood inlaid without the use of nails or glue. Floating Dock - a National Heritage registered building, built by the English being its structure imported from England. The Floating Dock is a fine example of state-of-the-art turn of the century (19th to 20th) that is today in pristine conditions and in full use. Indian Museum, with artifact and general use pieces coming mainly from tribes of the upper Negro river (700/1,000 km). Customs building, that retains to this day its original use, this is a very original building, considering that it was entirely built in England, dismounted and reassembled in Manaus, and it is to this day one of Manaus’ cherished buildings. Tour will also pass by the Harbor and the Adolpho Lisboa Municipal Market, one of the examples of architecture with European features. The delicate art nouveau design of its cast iron imported from Glasgow, Scotland frames the stained glass windows of this copy of the former Les Halles market in Paris. Overnight at hotel.
