Questions about example sentences with, and the definition and usage of "Rio"

The meaning of "Rio" in various phrases and sentences

Q: What does If ever you’re in Rio, Do give me a call.

mean?
A: Normally we would put “ever” after “you’re,” but in this sentence they are speaking more formal/fancier.

In this sentence, “ever” means the same as it would if you worded it like this:
“If you’re ever in Rio, do give me a call.”
This sentence is more natural and used in everyday conversation, so don’t worry about the one you typed!

“Ever” means at any time, so they are saying at any time that person goes to Rio, they want them to call (so they can meet again).

Does this make sense? :)
