Lonely Planet review

A world away from the bustle of Copacabana's busy avenues, the Bairro Peixoto is a peaceful enclave centered on the leafy Praça Edmundo Bittencourt. There you'll find a playground, park benches and tables where folks play dominoes and read the paper, all of which seem to lend the setting more of a village-like air than a big-city neighborhood. You might even see a few marmosets up in the trees. A good day to visit is on Wednesday, when the weekly fruit market is on.
