Getting Ouro Preto from Rio. What are my Options?

by Traveler-from-NY Online Now Nov 16, 2008 at 6:36 AM

I will be in Rio in January 2009, and I would like to see Ouro Preto. What are my options for getting there? I have read about a bus that goes overnight, but are there any faster ways? Train, maybe a private motorcoach? Thanks for your help.

    you have no trains from rio to ouro preto.

    a private coach is possible, but very expensive.

    you can fly to belo horizonte and then drive from the to ouro preto, but i don't really think you can save any time that way.

    The best way to go to Ouro Preto from Rio de Janeiro is by Belo Horizonte.
    The route Rio--> Belo Horizonte may be carried out by bus or plane. If you're in a rush land in Pampulha Airport and then get a couch (van/car) to Ouro Preto. There are some tour companies specialized in conveying tourists from Pampulha to Ouro Preto. I am sending some links concerned in this subject:
